Annual Campaign Letter
“In such dark times, we all need to shine—
each to each, with what light we have…”
Cecilia Woloch – BOA PoetWith your help, BOA Editions will continue to shine the light of poetry and literature, a light of hope, as we enter the new decade. For 33 years, BOA has fostered and shared hope through the words of its poets and writers. In 2009, BOA books and authors received notice in more than 200 newspapers, magazines, journals, and literary websites. Our authors read their work all over the country; indeed, all over the world. BOA’s poems are frequently featured on Garrison Keillor’s radio program “The Writers Almanac.” BOA books have won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award and the Poetry Foundation’s Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize. With BOA’s focus on identifying, cultivating and publishing the work of emerging poets, this year we are particularly proud of Janice N. Harrington, a BOA Poulin Contest winner, whose first BOA poetry collection, Even the Hollow My Body Made Is Gone, received the Kate Tufts Discovery Award (given to “a first book by a poet of genuine promise”) and the Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers Award (“in honor of the special contributions women writers make to our culture and society”). With all this good news and so much to look forward to in our 34th year as an independent not-for-profit literary publisher, BOA recently launched a blog at www.boaeditions.org/blog. The blog features the latest BOA news and video and audio clips of our authors, as well as reviews, letters, and other treasures from BOA’s publishing archives. We hope you welcome the opportunity to support BOA. Your tax-deductible contribution will help ensure that BOA books reach and inspire current and future poetry lovers and readers. Please support BOA and shine on.
