Praise for John McAuliffe 'A selection of poets which has benefitted from the different eyes of the anthology editors Michael Schmidt and John McAuliffe, and all of whom, if we didn't know before, we will know when they make their own indelible mark on poetry in the years to come.'
Andrew McMillan, The Poetry Book Society Spring Bulletin
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.'
