W.S. Merwin

Now and then we like to browse the crowdfunding sites to see what’s new in the world of poetry. We were somewhat surprised to discover that the very distinguished Copper Canyon Press has just launched a Kickstarter campaign, The Essential W.S. Merwin, to help the press publish the definitive collection of W.S. Merwin’s poetry.

“As a backer, you’ll gain a collection for your library that you’ll surely turn and return to. You can even choose to have your name, or the name of a loved one, printed in every first-edition copy of the book (imagine your name alongside Merwin’s in the Library of Congress). Your contribution will help ensure that poetry readers of today—and generations of readers to come—will have a place to experience Merwin’s work again, or for the first time.”

Visit Kickstarter before 5:00pm, Thursday, December 1, 2016, to learn more…and be part of the crowd.
