A 6-month subscription to The Rumpus Poetry Book Club makes a great gift! What does that mean? It means that once a month for six months, the lucky recipient of this gift will get a brand-new poetry collection direct to their mailbox. These are books that haven’t been released for sale yet, so they’ll be getting books before anyone else has seen them. Plus, they’ll have a vibrant, engaged community to discuss the books with, and a chance to meet, in a virtual sense, the author of each book during a one-hour online chat.
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!
And we want you to give this to your book-loving friends. Or treat yourself. After all, who deserves this gift more than you?
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 6-month subscriptions are non-refundable.
We do not offer international Poetry Book Club subscriptions at this time, but we hope to in the future.
