The Constant Critic

From 2010-2017 I edited The Constant Critic, Fence Books' online journal of poetry reviews. In editing the journal I worked with the journal's stable of four to five poet-critics to select books, develop pieces, and house them on our site. Poet-critics included Vanessa Place, Jordan Davis, Christina Mengart, Sueyeun Juliette Lee, Ray McDaniel, Elizabeth-Jane Burnett, Martha Ronk, Stephen Motika, and myself.

The Constant Critic focuses on reviewing books published by small presses and features work that engages today's contemporary audience with intelligence, innovation, and insight. Our reviews are between 1,500-3,000 words and push beyond general impressions into poetics and cultural criticism.
