Between 1980 and 1990 he edited the Athens-based art & literary journal Clinamen, which featured translations of several influential American poets into Greek for the first time.

LA-Lit interviews poets and writers in the Los Angeles area. Reflecting the shifting nature of Los Angeles as a place, this may mean writers that have lived in LA all their lives or writers who happen to be in LA for a few days. LA-Lit is a place for the literary culture of Los Angeles to develop and exhibit itself. Co-hosted and co-produced by Stephanie Rioux and Mathew Timmons, LA-Lit is sponsored by Superbunker and recorded at Betalevel.
