The Editor's Circle  

Thank you for your interest in joining the Editor's Circle, a group of supporters who are:

  • Passionate in their love of the arts
  • Visionary in the possibilities for poetry
  • Generous in support of an indefatigable publisher
  • Eager to meet each year to eat delicious food, drink good wine, talk about poets and poetry, and honor a forthcoming Copper Canyon book with the “Editor's Circle Selection”


Who's in the Editor's Circle and what do they do?

Membership in the Editor's Circle is open to interested donors who make an annual gift of at least $5,000.

At the bi-annual gatherings held each spring and fall, the Executive Editor of Copper Canyon Press presents several books of poetry for consideration for the “Editor's Circle Selection.”


Editor's Circle Benefits

In gratitude for their visionary support, Editor's Circle members receive:

  • Acknowledgement in every title that Copper Canyon Press publishes.
  • Invitation to participate in two exclusive editorial presentations each year.
  • Ability to help determine the “Editor's Circle Selection” each year.
  • Pleasure in awarding the “Editor's Circle Selection” poet an honorarium.
  • Periodic “behind-the-scenes” communiques from our Executive Editor to gain insight—and an insider's view—into the curatorial process at Copper Canyon.
  • And best of all, copies of every book Copper Canyon Press publishes.
