Daniel Lawless is the editorial effort behind the newly launched Plume, an online publication of poetry. Plume, Lawless writes, “is a magazine dedicated to publishing the very best of contemporary poetry,” and though the first issue is “expanded” to include 16 works, the monthly issues will be limited to 12 poems each.
The Plume home page features a slideshow of quotes, short poems, aphorism, snippets, and excerpts of 50 words or fewer. Submissions of this content are accept as well as original poetry submissions for each issue. While Plume will be presented in English, international contributions are welcome, with plans for bilingual editions.
Issue one features poems by Stuart Dybek, Amy Gerstler, Mark Jarman, Kimberly Johnson, Christopher Kennedy, Nin Andrews, Maureen McLane, Rae Armantrout, Jean-Michel Maulpoix, Charles Bernstein, Alicia Ostriker, Carl Dennis, Terese Svoboda, Denise Duhamel, and G.C. Waldrep.
Issue 2 will include works by from Jay Parini, John Kinsella, Lawrence Raab, Linda Pastan, Paol Keineg, Stephen Dunn, Elaine Equi, David Huddle, Cornelius Eady, and others.
