Help Publish HERE: POEMS FOR THE PLANET

Our planet is in crisis. As readers, publishers, and writers, we must ask ourselves: In this pivotal moment, what is our role? 

Here: Poems for the Planet answers this question through poetry and a practical guide to activism, inviting readers to get inspired—literally, take in a new breath—and then take action. Here includes poems from more than 125 voices including U.S. Poet Laureates, Pulitzer Prize-winners, and youth poets; a foreword from His Holiness the Dalai Lama; and a 37-page guide from the Union of Concerned Scientists. It will be published on Earth Day in 2019, with your help.

Visit our Kickstarter page to make a donation, or for more information, contact George Knotek, Co-Publisher, at george@coppercanyonpress.org.
