Like the online Plume, which has quickly come to be the standard for digital poetry journals, his fourth Plume anthology, like the earlier incarnations, keeps its center of gravity in the indomitably eclectic acuity of its editor.
~ Daniel Tobin, from the preface
American poetry as the dream, the dream of what we are, the dream of who we were, the dream of who we can be. It’s here again as Plume continues to come back to us anew, diverse, fresh, vibrant, symphonic, and enduringly real.
~ Afaa Michael Weaver
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 Swensen
Plume is one of my favorite sources for new poetry—online or in print. Thoughtful, entertaining, capacious, with no use for aesthetic axe-grinding, its highly enriched oxygen will add energy to your life!
~ David Rivard
Plume is a gem—in the rare-and-wondrous-find sense. Each issue is a hand-plucked, precisely curated composition, tended with great care, full of mystery, and delivering batches of the freshest, most provocative, and necessary writing around. Danny Lawless’s vision is exquisite.
