Published in Issue 19 of Visionary Tongue, Autumn 2005.

A very smart poetry magazine (with occasional splattering of fiction) edited by Robert Cole and Susie Reynolds. Chimera presents an intelligent selection of verse, with a remarkable range of subject matter from some of the best known names in the small press, as well as some knew names showing us all how it should be done. Carefully edited by it’s experienced team of editors, this publication is I feel at the forefront of quality writing, and a place where most poets should be looking to place their work. If you want a comprehensive idea of what’s out there, buy Chimera, and their launch parties are, I’m sure destined to become hotbeds of creativity.
