Editorial Reviews


Chain is a terrific resource for writers, students, teachers of poetics and translation at the Jack Kerouac School at The Naropa Institute in Boulder. We appreciate its taking on major experimental modes and areas of debate and collaboration. One of the best "outrider" magazines, a true cultural intervention. -- Anne Waldman

From the word go, Chain has been a delight. It makes a brilliant linkage of the myriad persons and patterns that inform both the crisis in feminist thinking and also its inexhaustible resources. Jena Osman and Juliana Spahr have really started something that's not about to stop. -- Robert Creeley

I wouldn't be caught dead saying that any one poetry magazine was the best since I appreciate so many. But as long as we keep this between us, what you're looking for begins with a C and ends with an N - and there's an H and an A and an I in between. You won't be with it if you're without it. -- Charles Bernstein

Of the women I know, I have invited only those whose work I admire and want for my magazine. It seems the others send their poems to Chain, where they can stay, as far as I'm concerned, from an aesthetic position. -- Dale Smith, editor, Mike and Dale's Younger Poets
