Wild Gods: The Ecstatic In Contemporary Poetry and Prose

Edited by Joel Peckham Jr. & Robert Vivian

“Though ‘ecstatic’ is often used as a synonym for ‘joy,’ our application of the term embodies the entire emotional palette and is open to any ego-effacing experience of one-ness. Profound grief or outrage can access the ecstatic—as can experiences of extreme pleasure, pain, and wonder. It can explore the profane as much as the sacred and is often an expression of both…”

They Rise Like a Wave: An Anthology of Asian American Women Poets

Edited by Christine Kitano & Alycia Pirmohamed

“The anthology’s goal is to, in this troubling political and cultural era, share a true American perspective of origins and lifestyle that defies any current effort to constrict the definition of American. We earnestly seek to create an anthology that celebrates our religious, ethnic, cultural, gender, and political diversity. We also hope that our anthology is one drop in an inevitable wave that pushes back against the recent rise of racial and religious intolerance in America.”

The World I Leave You: Asian American Poets on Faith & Spirit

Edited by Lee Herrick & Leah Silvieus

“The first anthology of its kind, The World I Leave You: Asian American Poets on Faith and Spirit, spotlights poets of the Asian diaspora with connections to East, West, South, and Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands who represent a variety of cultures and religious traditions including Islam, Hinduism, Christianity, Buddhism, and Zoroastrianism. Among the contributors are active religious practitioners, recent converts, agnostics, and those who practice a personal spirituality. This vibrant collection includes many of this generation’s most acclaimed writers and exciting new voices to create a nuanced and dynamic portrait of today’s Asian American poets and their spiritual engagements with issues such as poetry as spiritual witness, locating the divine in the natural world, relationships with cultural history and ancestors, spiritual practice as a form of political resistance, questions of faith and doubt, and prayers and rituals.”

New Poetry from the Midwest 2019

Edited by Hannah Stephenson & Rita Mae Reese

“The New Poetry from the Midwest anthology seeks to support and spotlight the flourishing crop of Midwestern writers who consistently produce work that is innovative, finely crafted, and strong in voice and the ability to connect. The series seeks to explode the generally accepted notions of what the Midwest is and what Midwestern writing is, while honoring its rich and long-standing histories. What counts as poetry of the Midwest? We feature poets who currently live in, pursued an education in, or were born in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, or Wisconsin, as well as poets writing about any of these states or the region as a whole.”

The Allure of Grammar: The Glamour of Angie Estes’s Poetry

Edited by Doug Rutledge

“Of Angie Estes, the poet and critic Stephanie Burt has written that she ‘has created some of the most beautiful verbal objects in the world.’ In The Allure of Grammar, Doug Rutledge gathers insightful responses to the full range of Estes’s work—from a review of her first chapbook to a reading of two poems appearing in her 2018 book, Parole—that approach these beautiful verbal objects with both intellectual rigor and genuine awe.

In addition to presenting an overview of critical reactions to Estes’s oeuvre, reviews by Langdon Hammer, Julianne Buchsbaum, and Christopher Spaide also provide a helpful context for approaching a poet who claims to distrust narrative. Original essays consider the craft of Estes’s poetry and offer literary analysis. Ahren Warner uses line breaks to explore a postmodern analysis of Estes’s work. Mark Irwin looks at her poetic structure. Lee Upton employs a feminist perspective to explore Estes’s use of italics and to look at the way she uses dance as a poetic image. Doug Rutledge considers her relationship to Dante and to the literary tradition through her use of ekphrasis. An interview with Estes herself, in which she speaks of a poem as an ‘arranged place…where experience happens,’ adds her perspective to the mix, at turns resonating with and challenging her critics.”

2018 Digital Writers’ Festival: Poem Phone

Project by Emerging Writers’ Festival

“How often do you pick up the phone these days? As we’ve moved back to predominantly text-based forms of communication, phone calls spent on hold to customer service, telemarketing or seemingly interminable robo-calls are de rigeur. Riffing on John Giorno’s iconic 1969 artwork, this is a Dial-a-Poem for the internet age.”

Breathe: 101 Contemporary Odes

Edited by Ryan G. Van Cleave & Chad Prevost

“A testament to the stunning variety of the human experience, this timely anthology reminds us of the singular importance of poetry to our lives and our souls. The influence of Horace, Keats, and Neruda is deeply evident in the lyric beauty of these poems, but more than a few defy conventions and challenge the form itself in an exciting expansion of boundaries. Selected for their language, their imagery, their honesty, and their insight, this gathering of 101 poems by 95 poets is a fresh sampling of memorable new odes in the English language.”

O Taste and See: Food Poems

Edited by David Lee Garrison & Terry Hermsen

“[…] Are we ready to look at still-lifes —or read poems about food— in a way that people in the early days of our country were not? Have we turned the equation around and come to see in everyday things the depth of our existence? This book, in a quiet way, suggests just that. It asks us to examine with words, as carefully as Raphaelle Peale did with his brush, the sources of sustenance, of memory and community that bring food to our lives…”
