Editorial Focus

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.
