Lewis Warsh, in memoriam, 1944-2020

SPD is deeply saddened by the passing of Lewis Warsh, an extraordinary poet, artist, and publisher, whose generosity was known to writers of all generations. 

As a teacher and correspondent, Warsh was kind and prolific. He will be missed by many. Our hearts go out to all those who experienced the joy of talking with him and especially all who loved him.
