"Assuming Size successfully manages to present the work of four very different voices in a chapbook that never feels like it is overextending itself...[the chapbook] pushes readers back and forth between moments of 'light humor,' 'poignancy,' and 'despair' in a manner that manages to never come off as overbearing in one direction or the other." — Stephen McGouldrick

"Assuming Size is a nicely realized collection by four young poets, and an inspiring example of do-it-yourself publishing. I think readers old and young will see the value in this." — Dan Tarnowski at On Lives

"I repeat: this is a poetry chapbook published in 2010." — Razorcake
