“Poetry must be available to the pubic in far greater volume than it is.”- Poet Joseph Brodsky

. Our vision is to provide poets/ writers with a showcase for their work. The Review was published on line in order to provide a broad audience for the poets and writers we publish. We have attempted to provide the readers of The Fox Chase Review and those attending The Fox Chase Reading Series with a wide range of styles and schools of poetry as well as in presentation. The Review was published three times a year.
The poets and writers who contribute to the review and our staff are gracious in that the work is provided at no cost to the reader.
Admission to all Fox Chase Reading Series Events are free although we do encourage you to support our venues when visiting.
