Desk & Exam Copies

July 2020 Update: Due to the current health crisis, our office is working with reduced staff at our Port Townsend office, and shipping will be delayed. We welcome your desk and exam copy requests, and we will do our best to provide educators with the materials they need. Please expect 2-3 weeks for your books to arrive. Thank you, as always, for bringing Copper Canyon poetry to your students!

We offer a desk and exam copy program to educators interested in teaching Copper Canyon titles in their classrooms.

If you are an educator with an Ingram account, you can request desk and exam copies here.

You can also submit the form below.

  • Exam copies of books under consideration for a course are $5 each for paperback, and 50% off list price each for hardcover in order to help offset shipping costs. After you fill out the form below, we will email you a link for secure online payment.
  • Desk copies of books already adopted for a specific course are free.

To request desk or exam copies of APR/Honickman First Book Prize-winning titles, please contact American Poetry Review Editor Elizabeth Scanlon:
