He was a founding editor of the poetry zines The Silent Planet (1973) and Treaders of Starlight (1974–76), and was main instigator in both cases. The first was part of the circle of publications around Wyrd, a small-press fantasy magazine. For the second, Rich coined the term speculative poetry, now in wide use. He published such writers as Jessica Salmonson, Ron Nance, H. Warner Munn, and L. Sprague de Camp.
