The New Poets Project: Emerging Voices Amplified by You
Has your life ever been changed by a book of poems? Consider that every great poet—Neruda, Dickinson, Whitman, Lorde—was once an unpublished writer. What if your favorite poet had never been published? What if that phenomenal, life-changing poetry had never reached you?
Ocean Vuong and Camille Rankine are two such extraordinary poets—their first books have recently been published, each to great acclaim—and they’ve come together to invite you to support Copper Canyon Press and The New Poets Project.
As Ocean says, “For any publisher to have a vote of confidence and publish a first book, that in itself is an act of courage on their part.” And Camille adds, “I hope that you'll consider making a gift to Copper Canyon Press. Supporting the important work they're doing, bringing new and exciting voices into the poetry world.”
By backing The New Poets Project, you’re joining Copper Canyon Press to invest in a beautiful mystery: the future of poetry and the unfolding lives of poetry readers.
Your gift to this campaign will help fund the publication of poets who, like Camille and Ocean, are at the beginning of promising careers. Your gift today to Copper Canyon, a nonprofit independent publisher, will help to fund forthcoming first books including Javier Zamora’s stunning collection How We Learned to Walk scheduled for publication in 2017.
