Comments

"Around 1950, while living in New Hampshire, Robert Creeley abandoned plans for his yet-to-be-launched little magazine. Among the material he had already gathered was work from poet Cid Corman, who was then hosting a weekly radio show in Boston entitled "This Is Poetry." Corman expressed his disappointment over the loss of the magazine to a listener, one Evelyn Schoolman, who responded by offering to back Corman in a magazine of his own if he wished. Thus began Origin: a quarterly for the creative. Material gathered by Creeley along with work brought in by Corman helped to establish, in Creeley's words, "A Place defined by our own activity"" (Clay & Phillips pp.112-113).
