FWQ is taking an extended break.

About Floating Wolf Quarterly

Floating Wolf Quarterly presents poetry in chapbook form, uniquely designed for digital platforms. Each quarterly edition offers the work of an established poet paired with the work of an emerging poet.

Each chapbook is also available from Amazon.com as a well-formatted poetry ebook for Kindle. Sales of the ebooks fund the continued production of FWQ.

Contributors include recipients of MacArthur, Guggenheim, and Wallace Stegner fellowships. Many emerging poets, since appearing in FWQ, have gone on to publish their first books.


FWQ is a one-person shop: Christopher Louvet designs, edits, and publishes it.

If you'd like to know more, Scott Geiger asked me questions about Floating Wolf Quarterly for BOMB magazine's blog.

There is a mailing list. Email and I'll put you on it. You'll receive at least four emails a year announcing a new edition. If you're on that list and don't want to be, email me and I'll remove you from it.

At this time, FWQ does not accept unsolicited submissions..


FWQ holds first electronic rights for each chapbook it publishes; where individual poems have previously appeared elsewhere, acknowledgement is given. Copyright for each chapbook reverts to the author upon publication.

Future publication of poems that have appeared in Floating Wolf Quarterly should acknowledge their initial appearance on this website.

Please, if you copy any FWQ poems for posting elsewhere or blogging, link back to this site and provide proper attribution.


This website uses HTML, CSS, and Javascript to deliver poetry in a uniquely readable online format. FWQ has been developed for the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. iPhones and iPads also render FWQ chapbooks optimally.

Internet Explorer versions 7 and above display FWQ chapbooks functionally. Sadly, even the latest stable advanced versions of Internet Explorer cannot accommodate the FWQ reading experience because they do not respect the HTML5 history API.

Other browsers, lesser versions of the above, and other devices have not been tested and may or may not not realize FWQ chapbooks as they have been intended.
