Poetry Benefit & Fund Drive

In a time of national heartbreak, facing the dual pandemics of racism and COVID-19, poetry is one among many tools for protest. As we continue to march, to kneel, to call, and to self-educate, we take seriously the responsibility to safeguard a future for poetry and independent publishing. 

With humility, we invite you to take the following action today:

Make your annual gift to Copper Canyon Press

Using the form on this page, please make your gift today. We cannot weather the current economic storm and publish the next season of poetry without the support of our donors. All gifts through June 30th, 2020 will be doubled by a matching grant from the Lannan Foundation. 

  • Donors giving $100 or more will receive our limited-edition anthology, The World Has Need of You, gathering poems of connection for a time of pandemic. 
  • Your name or the name of a loved one will be published in The World Has Need of You to honor your gift of $250 or more.
  • And visionary donors who give $1,000 or more will join our circle of Patron Subscribers and receive a copy of every book that Copper Canyon publishes for one year.

Please make your gift today.

Thank you!
