Thank you for your interest in using work published by BOA Editions. To protect copyright and to ensure that our authors 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. Please be advised that once the form is submitted, the permissions process can take 2-4 weeks to complete.
We receive requests to include poems, stories, and excerpts in anthologies, plays, newspapers, journals, screenplays, musical compositions, bus and subway advertisements, restaurant menus, paintings, and for broadcast on television, radio, and the internet.
We encourage certain personal usage - such as emailing a poem to a family member or friend - that does 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., www.boaeditions.org.
If you have any questions as to whether your proposed use of BOA Editions work is subject to existing copyright restrictions, please contact our Permissions Expert, Fred Courtright, directly at The Permissions Company: firstname.lastname@example.org.
