The Lune hosts contemporary poetry in undistracted spaces. Each print edition features three new collections by as many poets. Online we share epiphanic writings that range across forms, themes, and events. Twenty-three titles by twenty-six poets, ten readings, a digital reservoir, and over 1,000 shipments later, the quiet revolution continues.
Born in 2015 at Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Café, The Lune took shape in the wake of LuNaMoPoLiS, a publisher of poetry founded by two primates who lived aboard a pirate ship while attending the Jack Kerouac School. The publication's name comes from the short form invented by Jack Collom and Robert Kelly.
