Edited by US-based poets Philip Nikolayev and Katia Kapovich, FULCRUM: an annual of poetry and aesthetics is a 500-page one-of-a-kind international serial anthology that includes poetry, critical and philosophical essays on poetry, debates, and visual art. It distills an evolving map of what is most vital in the poetic process throughout the regions populated by the English language.
Present-day poetry does not yet know itself well. Genuinely international, broadminded, intelligent anthologies remain in short supply. FULCRUM welcomes poetry marked by diverse accents, in a variety of forms, registers and dialects. At the same time, we work against the balkanization of the art into ideological "camps" and "schools."
You may be curious about poetry yet confused or even frustrated by its current situation, or you may be a leading expert on the state of the art. In either event, you need just one unique periodical that covers it all in a well-informed and tasteful manner and presents an evolving atlas of the poetic terrain worldwide, from the US and Canada and the Caribbean to England, Scotland and the two Irelands, from India to Africa, from Sri Lanka to the Isle of Man, from Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines to New Zealand and Australia. FULCRUM is your indispensable guide in this circumnavigation.
