Dear Backers of Ursula K. Le Guin: A Poet’s Legacy,

You are amazing! 

Today we met our stretch goal just hours before the campaign deadline. You and 1,079 other reader-heroes made this happen! 

Thank you for giving generously, increasing your pledge, and sharing your enthusiasm far and wide—because of you and your love for Le Guin, the project grew beyond our original vision.

Now we can confidently move our limited edition of Wild Angels into production alongside So Far So Good. All backers at the levels of $25+ will receive the rare gift of reading Ursula K. Le Guin’s earliest poems alongside her last. 

Thank you again for helping celebrate the legacy of Ursula K. Le Guin: multi-genre wonder, many-tentacled luminary, beloved novelist and poet.

And thank you for helping Copper Canyon Press to sustain our work as a nonprofit, independent publisher dedicated to poetry. 

With enormous gratitude,

The Team at Copper Canyon Press

PS:

We plan to ship both books together in the fall—stay tuned for updates along the way. In the meantime, we have an important request:

Please keep an eye out for a backer survey from us, which you should receive tomorrow, Friday June 29th.

We will need those surveys back by 5pm PDT on July 9th in order to process your rewards—this is how you’ll give us crucial information like which email address we should use to deliver the digital broadside if you gave $10 or more, what name you’d like printed in the book if you gave $100 or more, and where we should ship your physical rewards. Thank you!

      Congrats! Great imagination combined with action unmakes the traditional publishing pigeonhole to make anew more space free for tentacles to roam. Soar. Thanks!
