Dear Ms. Cooper,
Let me introduce myself. I am Grace Chan, the author of Teach & Practice for the HKDSE Paper I Reading.
I am very grateful for your kindness to permit us to use your poems Health Fuel in my book mentioned above. Ever since I ‘discovered’ your poems on the Internet in 2008, I have become a fan of your poetry. Your poems are excellent creations. They are refreshing, insightful and inspiring. In addition, they cover so many themes and topics, from love & romance, friends & family to nature and social issues.
As a teacher and a writer, I find your poems brilliant teaching and learning materials. One understanding feature, I believe, is the warmth, optimism and the positive values your poems exude. These are the attributes that we all, especially young people, need these days.
In my upcoming books, it would be a privilege if you could permit us to use a few of your poems for teaching and learning purposes.
Once again, thanks for giving the literary world, our teachers and students such wonderful poetry.
