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.
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.
You can write a review of the book and we’ll run the best written review(s) on the website. You don’t have to participate in the discussion or review the book, you could just subscribe to receive a new, unpublished poetry book every month.
We’re going to try to only read good books. Of course, all creative writing is subjective. But if we choose a poetry book, it’s because we believe it’s really good. We’ll often have to chose between several really good poetry books, but there’s no way around that.
