The Fox Chase Collective 


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

It was with Brodsky’s statement in mind we have produced of The Fox Chase Review on line, our blog and our reading series to reach the broadest audience possible of readers of poetry.

The Fox Chase Review was founded in the summer of 2007 followed by The Fox Chase Reading Series by Philadelphia Poet/Writer g emil reutter. Please note the web site for The Fox Chase Review is now  http://www.thefoxchasereview.org/

. 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 is 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.
