Give the gift of The Rumpus Poetry Book Club. Get books before they’re released, and engage in moderated chats with the authors. When you purchase the gift subscription you get one month of membership free.
How The Rumpus Poetry Book Club works: Every month we’ll choose a forthcoming poetry book, not yet available to the public. At the end of the month, we’ll host an exclusive online discussion with the book club and the author. We’ll publish an edited version of the discussion on The Rumpus the following month—to see what that looks like, go here.
Which authors do we chat with? We’ve featured poets like Tracy K. Smith, Jericho Brown, Solmaz Sharif, Kaveh Akbar, Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Eloisa Amezcua, Tarfia Faizullah, and Kamilah Aisha Moon. Upcoming poets include Natasha Tretheway, Marwa Helal, Sally Wen Mao, Hala Alyan, Ilya Kominsky, Franny Choi, Natalie Scenters-Zapico, and more!
Please subscribe by the 20th of the month to receive following month’s book and join in the chat with its author. For example, to receive our March book, please make sure to subscribe by February 20.
Please note that one-year subscriptions are non-refundable.
We do not offer international Poetry Book Club subscriptions at this time, but we hope to in the future.
HOLIDAY NOTE: All subscriptions purchased through December 20 will begin with our January selection. Subscriptions purchased after 12/20 will begin with our February selection. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
