Help publish Indigo by Ellen Bass and Boost Our Spring Poetry Season


“You may have to break/ your heart, but it isn't nothing/ to know even one moment alive,” writes Ellen Bass in Indigo

 

Bring this transformational new poetry book to life! With your help, Indigo will be published by Copper Canyon Press in spring 2020 alongside nine other extraordinary collections. 

 

Make your pledge on Kickstarter today.

 

As a nonprofit publisher of poetry, only half of our overall operational expenses are covered by book sales, so each pledge helps us to sustain our community-powered model of getting poetry into the hands of those who'll benefit from it. We turn to our community (that's you!) to help us continue to publish poetry that matters. Thank you for helping us get there!
