Named after the “American haiku” co-invented by Jack Collom and Robert Kelly, and inspired by the sense of “poetry as correspondence”—between persons, planets, symbols, etc.—The Lune's first editions were unbound chapbooks housed in pre-stamped envelopes and sold at bookstores along the Front Range.

With an emphasis on contemplative and collaborative poetics, our catalogue is shaped around the sense of wonder, delight in experiment, and concern for humanity reflected in the work of contemporary poets.

Representative Authors: 

Reed Bye, Jack Collom, Laura Cesarco Eglin, Anne Waldman, Ella Longpre, Maureen Seaton, Joanna Ruocco, David Mutschlecner, Jaime Robles, Jonathan Simkins, &c.

Loud Coffee Press is a quarterly unpretentious and unapologetic literary journal that focuses on three things we love: flash fiction, coffee, and music. We look for writing that hovers in that perfect brew spot of 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit, where the entire piece rocks us to our core. Give us something that keeps us up at night and leaves our ears ringing the next day.

We have unique submission guidelines so we encourage submitters to read them. If you catch us in a good mood, we might be willing to overlook some guideline mistakes for the sake of a fantastic piece. However, our most significant turn-offs come in the form of bland, generic stories, pieces that don’t contain a story arc, or topics that are derivative of current trends. We love music-focused submissions, but we often have to deny a great piece because it could potentially violate copyright law with quoted song lyrics.
