Note from the Editors / by Washington Square

It has recently become public knowledge that one of our Summer/Fall 2015 contributors, Michael Derrick Hudson, has submitted his poems to literary journals, and been published, under the name “Yi-Fen Chou.” At the time that we reviewed Hudson’s poems for our issue, his use of a pseudonym had not yet been discovered. Hudson submitted his work to us under his real name, and our issue was printed before this story was reported. The Washington Square Review Poetry Editors regret any ways that our publication of his work could further the hurt that he has caused others.
