Donor List

Make a Donation to BOA Editions, Ltd.

BOA Editions, Ltd. is one of the longest-running and most distinguished presses that publishes poetry, poetry in translation, and related contemporary literature. We do this because quality literature offers all of us a sense of beauty, wisdom and truth. Our books are considered by reviewers, booksellers, librarians, teachers and students to be some of the finest collections of literature currently being published. As the costs to publish and market this literature can exceed book sales, we look to foundations, businesses and individuals who care about reading and writing to make up the difference. To those of you who contributed tax-deductible donations we offer our most sincere gratitude and thanks. Because of your commitment, BOA Editions continues to be a force in American letters.

We apologize if we have inadvertently left your name off of this list.

If that is the case, please contact Melissa Hall at (585) 546-3410 or email her at so that we may correct our records.
