Poetic Faith states that “where meaning is freed, it is at risk of loosing the parameters of dogma.” We look to poets as agents of a quiet revolution, whereby language “does not so much point to a particular signified event or thing, it rather blooms with significant light that washes the whole landscape.” Our primary goal as a publisher is to liberate works of poetry by prayerful attendance to lexical ecosystems. We insist on logopoetic freedom, the interplay of ideation and communion. In poetry, the person is integral to the people; poetry heals wounds incurred through commercialism and dogmatism.
* The Lune does not currently accept unsolicited work for consideration. We remain devoted to correspondences in which poetry transpires, and hope you'll feel free to get in touch with thoughts and questions. On that note, here are a few of ours:
What does it mean to share poetry? What makes the gesture successful? How do (and don't) submissions serve (and honor) the communicative impulse? What are publishers really doing to serve poetry in this deeply significant and volatile age? Are we willing to make the changes that history deems necessary for survival? If poetry is to be found on the page, what does the page look like, and where is it situated? What are the commercial suggestions and expectations? What sacrifices, if any, do we make in an effort to communicate? What do we expect to happen? Do we expect communion? Is it working?
