Praise for Michael Schmidt '...probably the most informative and entertaining poetry journal in the English-speaking world.'
John Ashbery 'The most engaged, challenging and serious-minded of all the UK's poetry magazines.'
Simon Armitage 'It has attempted to take poetry out of the backwaters of intellectual life and to find in it again the crucial index of cultural health.'
Cairns Craig, Times Literary Supplement Praise for Grevel Lindop 'This is a poet who is alert to the human cost and implications of different environments and the ways societies behave in them, able to interrogate what connects and separates us from one another, and yet who never seems to be telling us how clever or well-travelled he is.' - Rory Waterman, TLS 'a fascinating read.'
William Oxley, Stride Magazine
