Publishers Weekly Profiles BOA Editions

Publishers Weekly has published a wonderful profile of BOA Editions in honor of our 35th anniversary. It's truly a tribute to all the authors, staff, board and supporters who have kept BOA Editions a leading indie press for all these years. Here's an excerpt from the article: "For 35 years, the nonprofit poetry publisher BOA Editions has been a national force, releasing work from heavyweights like Li-Young Lee, Lucille Clifton, and Michael Waters, as well as up-and-comers like Keetje Kuipers and Janice N. Harrington. When poet/editor/translator A. Poulin Jr. founded BOA Editions in 1976, the publishing landscape had little room for poetry. Peter Conners, BOA's current publisher, told PW that the secret to BOA's longevity is its commitment to reversing those circumstances: "I think that's one of the things we depend on our independent presses for, to recognize literary forms that are being underserved, and that need to be acknowledged and published and promoted."
