Writers on Environment: Review of Terrain.org Fall 2012 Issue
The Review Review : January 27, 2013
To end on a corny metaphor: If Terrain.org was filling out college applications it would have the hard sciences, the arts, and the extra-curriculars any school worth its salt would be looking for.  This is a journal that has something for everyone interested in the ideas of environment, place, and culture — readers and writers alike.


Screen Reading: Review  of Terrain.org Issue 31

Review: Terrain.org
Portal del Sol : February 1, 2011
We will let Terrain explain themselves: “It is not definitely about urban form, nor solely about natural landscapes. It is not precisely about human culture, nor necessarily about ecology. It is, rather, a celebration of the symbiosis between the built and natural environments where it exists, and an examination and discourse where it does not.” Now, drop what you are doing and go there. We’re not kidding. Talk about class, soul, art, and variety! It’s a product of genius, truly.

Interview with Terrain.org Editor-in-Chief
Iowa State University Creative Writing and Environment MFA Program : November 19, 2010
|
Indeed, opportunities would appear to be the optimal word — for technology, for collaborative efforts, for making a space to talk about environmental issues. And opportunities for considering the context of the built and natural environments in literary and technical mediums are what I hope we present in a lovely and important online format.


Editor Interview: Terrain.org
Duotrope : June 8, 2010
What sets Terrain.org apart is the compelling mixture of literary and technical work in theme-based issues presented in the most attractive and dynamic online format possible. There really isn’t anything else like Terrain.org, online or off. Each issue includes editorials, poetry, essays, fiction, articles, reviews, an interview, the ARTerrain gallery, and the UnSprawl case study. All issues are archived indefinitely, so it continues to serve as a resource and virtual oasis of sorts.
