The stereotypes about athletes and poets might make it seem like an odd combination, but poetry lives everywhere, and stereotypes need to be broken. The summer issue of Rattle features 22 poets who break the mold—professional athletes from the NFL and NBA, tennis pros, soccer players, weightlifters, marathon runners, and more—capped off with a wide-ranging conversation with semi-pro basketball player and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Stephen Dunn. As these poets explain in a particularly interesting contributor notes section, poetry and athletics fit together like a hand in a ball-glove. The open section will make you laugh and cry as always, with a little more formal verse than usual, and an epic “Choose Your Own Adventure” poem by Caroline N. Simpson, which also adds a splash of color art for the first time in years.

This issue features work by Laurie Borggreve, Douglas Cole, AR Dugan, Chloe Hedden, Richard Hoffman, A.C. Koch, Anastasia Komarova, Kacper Kowalski, Maria Martinez-Cañas, Julia Randall, Mary Reilly, Keiji Shinohara, Sharon Stepman, and Lynne Viti.

This issue of Catamaran homes in on the human experience, from the personal to the ontological. Our cover art is by Bay Area based painter Rolland Petersen, whose 60 year painting career is legendary, and whose wife Caryl is his model and muse. Alison Harris's story "The Knot" and Varda Fiszbein's "The Transparent Scarf" illustrate the beauty of chance encounters. Thomas Christensen gives us an informative survey of the prevailing theories of what constitutes life in his essay "La Vie en Rose." Poet Farnaz Fatemi stuns us with her viscerality, depening the artistic narrative. The paintings of Jason E. Carter illustrate the shades of suburban life in his "Domestic" series.

There is wonder and delight in RHINO 2018, to be sure. Just as there is goofy, slack-jawed, and subversive humor. And, of course, the issue is flush with imagination and linguistic artistry. But with titles like “Naked Bootleg and the American Distance” and “Being Caught in a Failing State,” this year’s poems also reveal the distinctly anxious tenor of our time. In this issue, find the Founders' Prize Winner: Asking for a Friend by Abby E. Murray; the Editor's Prize Winner: Worms by Erika Brummett; and the Translation Prize Winner: Hat by Dejan Aleksic trans. Charles Simic.

Welcome to our 30th year. In the fall we sponsored our 22nd contest and had hundreds of entries, including our poetry winner, “Christopher Childers’s “Frames for My Father”; our winning story, “Scheherazade” by William Schwartz; and our winning essay “Peeling Back Skin,” by Rachel Furey. It is fitting that, as we look back on 30 years of publication, we should find that remembering the past has emerged as a major theme of this issue: cover art by Johntimothy Pizzuto; former Poet Laureate Ted Kooser; Ann Struthers, who was in our very first issue as well as this one; Kim Lozano; Melanie Krieps Mergen; Emily Arnason Casey; Louise Marburg, and more.

What we leave behind us, and how we face the new. Art and cover by Paul Katz vividly embody the impulse to recast materials and signs. Stories by Stephen Dixon, Victoria Lancelotta, and Shahriar Mandanipour look at how we preserve and renew, while reflective essays by Emilia Phillips, Laura Gill, and Michael Stein resonate with poems of loss and remembrance by Gail Mazur, Cate Lycurgus, Rick Bursky and many others.
