From the eponymously named "Little Magazine" movement's little explosion of radical publishing in the 1960's and 70's,  The Amphora was a poetry magazine borne this wild excitement for collaboration. Of course this quality comes from the contributors and collage of materials, the context and connection. But that collective energy is also the subtext of editorial gestures; entrusting a "guest editor," the printer's personal stamp on the first page, the kind of unrelated, anonymous hand-drawn illustration with grooves still in the paper. With this spirit of both experiment and earnest effort, this issue is one that features some of the iconic voices that grew and/or thrived during this moment in literary history.

Ft.: Peter Hiley, Diane di Prima, Carl Rakosi, Lewis MacAdams, Denise Levertov, Andrew Crozier, Larry Eigner, Clark Coolidge, JAck Collom Maria Gitin, Ron Silliman, Charles Amirkhanian, David Gitin, Bruce Dalziel.
