Featured Poets

Most past issues of a fine line featured poetry from a certain writer. Now, every issue of a fine line magazine includes a seasonal Featured Poet. Here is our index of writers that have previously been featured in the magazine.

The Featured Student Poet was launched in 2019, and we continue to feature a student poet for every Winter edition of a fine line.
