From the San Francisco Chronicle Obituary for Frances Jaffer, one of the three founding editors of HOW(ever)

After the Small Press Traffic HOW(ever) event, Beverly Dahlen sent an email to all the participants and quoted Stephen Schwartz on Frances Jaffer. Dahlen highlighted Schwartz's comments about Jaffer and HOW(ever):

"A Chronicle review of the latter volume described her as ``one of a number of feminist poets whose questions about language remain largely unanswered but rigorously investigated.'

[Jaffer]served as an editor of HOWever, a major journal of innovative women's writing. She was especially interested in the work of such female poets as HD and Marianne Moore."
