Copyright Permission Form

Thank you for your interest in using work published by BOA Editions. To protect copyright and to ensure that our poets are paid for re-publication and dissemination of their work, we require a Permissions Request to stipulate and validate the terms and conditions of use. Charges vary depending on usage.

We receive requests to print poems in anthologies, plays, newspapers, journals, screenplays, musical compositions, bus and subway advertisements, restaurant menus, paintings, and broadcast poems on television, radio, and internet.

We encourage certain personal uses - such as emailing a poem to a family member or friend - that do not require specific permission. We do require that such use be appropriately acknowledged. The following credit line must be included with the poem:

"Title of Poem" from "Title of Book," copyright "Date" by "Author's Name," BOA Editions, Ltd.,

If you have any questions as to whether your proposed use of BOA Editions poetry is subject to existing copyright restrictions, please Fred Courtight at The Permissions Company directly at
