You are invited to help launch an exciting new anthology—A House Called Tomorrow: Fifty Years of Poetry. As part of our faithful Kickstarter community, you have made a profound impact on the world through poetry, helping Copper Canyon Press publish and distribute books by Pablo Neruda, Ocean Vuong, W.S. Merwin, Javier Zamora, Ursula K. Le Guin, Ellen Bass, and others.
A House Called Tomorrow draws on 50 years of publishing excellence and will be an enduring compendium of contemporary literature—a collection for your library that you will turn to again and again. This anthology includes more than 300 poems from Copper Canyon Press poets, including U.S. Poet Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, beloved and emerging poets—all of whom speak to the timely and timeless themes reverberating during the past half century. These poems were selected from Copper Canyon Press’s biblioteca by our poets, staff, and board members as ones that held special meaning and importance while also representing the exemplary and varied work of our poets. As a backer, you will help assure that this anthology reaches readers everywhere.
As you may know, Copper Canyon Press’s mission is to publish extraordinary poetry from around the world to engage the imaginations and intellects of readers. We want to continue this 50-year legacy of bringing the voices of poets—new and familiar—to readers around the world. Your support makes this possible, not only for A House Called Tomorrow, but also for new releases throughout the year.
As of October 7th, this project has raised $9,100 of their $25,000 goal. This project has 24 days left to raise the $25,000 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $25, you will get one digital broadside. For a pledge of $50, you will get one book.
