Copper Nickel is a meeting place for multiple aesthetics, bringing work that engages with our social and historical context to the world with original pieces and dynamic translations.

Issue 27 is particularly international--even for Copper Nickel--and features an expansive folio of younger and less-established Irish and UK poets, including Irish poets Martin Dyar, Elaine Feeney, Victoria Kennefick, Conor O'Callaghan, Paul Perry, Stephen Sexton, Lorna Shaughnessy, and Jessica Traynor; and UK poets James Byrne, Vahni Capildeo, Manuela Moser, Sam Riviere, ZoÌÇ Brigley Thompson, and Chrissy Williams. The oldest poet in the folio was born in 1968; the youngest poets were born in the 1990s.

Issue 27 also features three translation folios (which are a regular feature in Copper Nickel): (1) a group of five prose poems by Danish poet Carsten Rene Nielsen (b. 1966), translated and introduced by David Keplinger; (2) three longer poems by Mexican poet Cristina Rivera Garza (b. 1964), translated by Julia Leverone; and (3) four poems by Mauritian poet Khal Torabully (b. 1956), translated and introduced by Nancy Naomi Carlson.

This issue also includes fiction by Farah Ali, Amy Stuber, Jyotsna Sreenivasan, and Jacinda Townsend.

Nonfiction includes a personal essay on Guíönter Grass by poet and German translator Stuart Friebert, a lyric essay on hexes by Laughlin award winner Kathryn Nuernberger, and a lyric essay on hide-and-seek by Ira Sukrungruang. Poets in issue 27 include two-time Pushcart Prize winner T. R. Hummer, NEA Fellow Christopher Kempf, Kingsley Tufts Award winner John Koethe, Whitman Award winner Emily Skaja, Best American Poetry contributor Corey Van Landingham, Jenny Boychuk, Juan Morales, Paul Otremba, Paige Qui̱ones, Arthur Russell, Francis Santana, and Chelsea Wagenaar.

The cover features work by Denver-based photographer Kristen Hatgi Sink.
