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.
