Here’s what critics are saying: Poetry. Edited by Daniel Lawless. PLUME POETRY 7 comprises the very best new poems from a curated roster of renowned and emerging poets, hailing from the U.S. and abroad. Its contents have been labeled “eclectic” and “with no literary axe to grind.” Here you find under one roof a host of disparate poetries, from those of Pulitzer Prize winners Rae Armantrout and Stephen Dunn, to Kingsley Tufts Poetry Prize recipients Patrica Smith and this volume’s Featured Poet Angie Estes; from Billy Collins to Lydia Davis, Afaa Weaver to Kwame Dawes, Simon Armitage to Hiša Yu. But perhaps Bruce Smith says it best: “PLUME POETRY 7 offers a counter-voice to the dominant discourses of our age, a blessed alternative to broadcasts, and information, and ‘intelligence.’ There is virtuoso discernment and commitment and a discriminate sympathy at work in the assembly of these poets that remind us of our multiplicity, our endurance, our soul.” No wonder, then, that in its seventh year, the anthology has risen to the ranks of the Best American Poetry series and increasingly finds a home in some of the nation’s finest university classrooms, where by all accounts students and their instructors are perusing and using its poems to discover their own voices and, in the case of the latter, exciting new ways to guide them in that journey.
Plume 8 Poetry
“The Plume anthologies are a cause for celebration and Plume Poetry 8 is no exception. The poems come in all shapes and sizes—I found myself surprised, moved, and delighted on page after page. Such a variety of voices! So many riches! And a portfolio of poems by Kevin Prufer too. This is an anthology to treasure.” –Patricia Clark

The Plume 4 Anthology of Poetry
“A remarkably and deliciously eclectic collection, Plume 4 gives a wonderful sense of just how far the definition of poetry can stretch, and how much territory it can cover – and uncover. The editor has a keen sense for living language and, through all this diversity, there runs a vibrant thread, a vivid pulse, a raw edge that is life itself.”– Cole SwensonBuy Now
The Plume Anthology of Poetry, 2014
“Plume is one of the most exciting, eclectic gatherings of writers on the web. Editor Daniel Lawless has a knack for putting together voices that create surprising neighborhoods of words, related in complex ways that only gradually reveal themselves. It’s one of very few webzines that I always read.” ~ Chase TwichellBuy Now

We are happy to introduce — at last — The Plume Anthology of Poetry 2012. It is a a handsome volume, we think, comprising work from our online issues, new work from new poets, and a splendid Featured Poet section devoted to multiple works by a single artist: in this initial volume, that would be the great Dutch poet M. Vasalis, translated and with a beautiful and edifying introduction from one of our own great poets, David Young, together with Fred Lessing. Almost seventy poets are represented in this inaugural volume, often with several poems, representing a broad range of the best work by the best U.S. and international poets working today — the latter with both originals and English translations, from some of the finest translators in the field, including Stuart Friebert, Marliyn Hacker, Mark Wunderluch, and others.Buy Now
