Hello, Poets and Translators!

Thank you for your interest in submitting your poetry manuscript to Copper Canyon Press, a nonprofit publisher of poetry. We publish extraordinary poetry from around the world to engage the imaginations and intellects of readers.

Our open reading periods, held at least twice per year, allow us to read and consider book-length poetry manuscripts including works in translation. We invite submissions through the Submittable portal. Please note that we no longer read or respond to unsolicited manuscripts sent by mail or email.  


Before you submit your manuscript, we ask that you get to know the Press, familiarize yourself with our mission, our history, and our list of titles, in order to determine whether Copper Canyon is the best home for your poetry.


In addition to our open reading period, we invite you to submit to the APR/ Honickman First Book Prize, published by Copper Canyon and distributed by Consortium. Click here for complete guidelines.


Your patience and careful attention are appreciated as we continue to fine tune how we invite submissions. We may experiment with new and unique sets of submission structures, guidelines, and rhythms to help us attentively read and discover your work, balance our reading load, and ultimately to find extraordinary books of poetry to support and expand the Copper Canyon list.

Any submissions currently under our consideration will be reviewed and responded to as soon as possible. 


Thanks again, and best of luck.
