Opening on Saturday, June 30, 2012, this year’s Showcase will be on view throughout the month of July and will include all of the year's new poetry and poetry-related books, chapbooks and multimedia titles published in the United States. More than 2,100 titles were in last year’s exhibition, representing close to 650 U.S. publishers—commercial, university, independent, small and micro-presses.
Each title in our collection was donated by a publisher, poet, or poetry reader. If you’d like to donate a copy of your book, chapbook, or multimedia title, mail a copy to Poets House, Attn: Gina Scalise, 10 River Terrace, New York NY 10282.
If your title was published in the past year, please send one (1) copy so that we can include it in our Poets House Showcase.
