"The magazine," wrote Ray Rinaldi of the Denver Post, "is better curated than most, limiting itself in size while presenting some of the most readable poets around." With its basis in chapbook-length titles, The Lune 2017 proffers a unique engagement of contemporary poetry: each quarterly issue includes at least three short new collections by as many different authors. Designed to balance autonomy and interdependence, experimentation and coherence, each season's production is a real testament to the work of poets today. The 2017 collection includes four issues featuring fifteen works authored by the following inventive and prolific human beings:
Nina Pick, Thomas Phalen, Jonathan Simkins, j/j hastain, Tara Walker, Mark DuCharme, Laura Chalar, Ginger Teppner, Alicia Cahalane Lewis, Jaime Robles, Eleni Padden, Sherry Luo, Nicholas Carlos Fuenzalida, Curtis Romero, and Genelle Chaconas
Previous authors include Alan Mudd, Anne Waldman, David Mutschlecner, Ella Longpre, Jack Collom, Joanna Ruocco, Kari Treadwell, Laura Cesarco Eglin, Lisette Alonso, Marielle Grenade-Willis, Maureen Seaton, Olga Broumas, T Begley, and W. Scott Howard.
