An Anthology of Poetry for a Planet in Crisis


Our planet is in crisis. As readers, publishers, and writers, we must ask ourselves: In this pivotal moment, what is our role?

Here: Poems for the Planet, an anthology edited by Elizabeth J. Coleman and forthcoming in 2019 from our friends at Copper Canyon Press, answers this question through poetry and a practical guide to activism, inviting readers to get inspired—literally, take in a new breath—and then take action. Copper Canyon envisions distributing this important book to every member of Congress, donating copies to programs in need, and distributing the book widely. This will require a generous print run.

Here’s where you come in: Help Copper Canyon Press publish Here: Poems for the Planet! Through December 21, receive rewards like first-edition copies of the anthology, collector’s edition broadsides of a poem from the book, and more.
