The Fox Chase Collective 


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

For past issues of  The Fox Chase Review please check out the links under the Masthead 

It was with Brodsky’s statement in mind we have produced 21 issues of The Fox Chase Review an international review of poetry and fiction, our blog and our reading series to reach the broadest audience possible of readers of poetry and fiction.


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 .

. Our vision was 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 contributed to the review and our staff are gracious in that the work was provided at no cost to the reader.
