New book? Showcase it!

Poets House Showcase

If your poetry book (by an individual author, anthology, chapbook, biography, critical study, essay collection, CD, DVD, etc.) was published in the last year, here’s an opportunity to get it into a major collection and in front of a huge audience. Poets House (New York) invites poets and publishers to submit a single copy of each title for the Poets House Showcase, which will be held June 25 – August 15, 2015. Submission deadline: May 1, 2015.

More than 3,000 items were in the 2014 exhibition, representing work from over 650 commercial, university and independent presses.

There’s no special paperwork, but poets can email the librarian to see if a book is already in the collection. If not, Poets House suggests that you ask your publisher to send a copy or donate one yourself. All exhibited books become part of the Poets House library collection.

The Poets House library (some 60,000 volumes) is free and open to the public. The catalog is searchable online. If your book was not published in the last year, or if you would like to donate poetry books not currently in the catalog, Poets House is always happy to receive books for the collection.
