Help publish Ursula K. Le Guin's final poetry collection.
1,080 backers pledged $66,483 to help bring this project to life.


Posted by Copper Canyon Press (Creator)

Dear Backers,

We have huge news! 

Copper Canyon Press has secured rights to a limited printing of Ursula K. Le Guin’s first poetry chapbook, Wild Angels—originally published in 1975, and currently out of print. 

This limited edition will be available exclusively to you, backers of the Ursula K. Le Guin: Poet's Legacy Kickstarter campaign, to thank you for your help in publishing So Far So Good—and this chapbook. We can't wait for you to read Le Guin’s earliest poems, side-by-side with her ultimate collection! 

We are thrilled to announce Wild Angels in tandem with our stretch goal, which is to raise $65,000 by June 28th, in support of both Le Guin poetry projects.

So how will we reach our new stretch goal of $65k, you ask? Great question! If you and each of our backers take a moment to increase your pledge to a higher reward level, or find a friend to join the fun as a backer, we will reach the goal together. 

This edition of Wild Angels will not be for sale—this is a very special gift just for Kickstarter participants! If you have a friend or community who’d be sad to miss out on the opportunity, post this link on social media or send it along: See the note at the end of this message for the technical details on how to increase your pledge. 

Thank you! 

With gratitude, 

The Team at Copper Canyon Press

P.S. Wondering if you’ll receive a copy of Wild Angels? 

Rather than adding a new reward level, we intend Wild Angels to be a gift for all backers at the $25+ levels, to thank you for helping us publish So Far So Good, and to celebrate meeting our stretch goal together! Which brings us to our next note... 

P.P.S. How to increase your pledge:

To increase your pledge in support of our stretch goal and in celebration of Wild Angels, into Kickstarter, go to our project page, and click the “Manage My Pledge” button. Enter the new total amount you want to give (rather than adding to your existing pledge, you will choose a *new* pledge level or manually enter the total amount).

Thank you!

      I'm doing my best to promote the Kickstarter. I own 27 works by UKL, but because her early poetry is largely unavailable/out of print, I really really want this stretch goal to come to fruition.

      Thank you! What an unexpected and pleasant surprise to find in my emailbox.
