Here’s what some prestigious poets and critics have said about Toadlily Press and our poets’ work:

What a good idea: gather chapbook-sized collections from four excellent poets and print them together as one book.Thomas Lux

Let us salute Myrna Goodman, Maxine Silverman, Meredith Trede, and Jennifer Wallace, each a member of a rare writer’s group that plays like a string quartet, their voices balanced, but utterly individual, in this dashing new concept for a book of poems authored by four hands.
Molly Peacock

It is a brilliant idea to put together a festival of four different lyric voices. There is just enough room to give the reader an idea of each poet’s range and sensibility.Ilya Kaminsky

The Fifth Voice reflects a leap forward for the press; the gorgeously designed cover signifies a finely printed book.  The four poets included are well-served by the press and its delivery of poetry into the world. Julie Enszer

This fine volume reminds us why Toadlily Press is a necessary presence in contemporary poetry.
Suzanne Cleary
