New: Use Social Media to Fundraise for Poetry

We have some exciting news for you, a supporter of Copper Canyon Press! You can now use Instagram Stories and Facebook to fundraise directly for Copper Canyon Press. By sharing your personal support for Copper Canyon with your friends and family on social media and encouraging them to give, you become a powerful advocate for the value of nonprofit, independent publishing—and extraordinary poetry—in a more direct way than ever before.

This fall, we invite you to use these new features on Facebook and Instagram to help us raise funds for our new season of books. Every cent raised through Facebook and Instagram goes directly to the Press, and supports the publication of new poetry by Matthew Zapruder, Marianne Boruch, Monica Sok, and many others.

Facebook provides a simple 3-step walk-through for creating a fundraiser here. Or you can follow the steps in the video below.

If you’re familiar with Instagram Stories, learn how to use the Instagram donation sticker here. For instructions on how to create an Instagram Story first, go here.

Create a fundraiser, share your Copper Canyon connection (a poem, a story, an author who is important to you), and share with your friends. It only takes a few minutes to make a big impact for poetry.

When you launch your fundraiser for Copper Canyon make sure to drop us a note so we can thank you.

We’re grateful, as always, for your support!
