Become a Patron of World Poetry


Consider what your bookshelf might look like if you were to remove every book that has been translated – every Homer, Dante, Pushkin, Rumi, Li Po, Neruda, or the Bible. Imagine removing every book by an author whose work has been influenced and shaped by a translation. Every lover of literature knows that exceptional literature requires exceptional translators to bring it new life in a new language. Unlike large, mass-market publishers, we believe in championing translators, not hiding them.

By making a donation to World Poetry Books, you are helping us find, foster, and promote the work of today’s and tomorrow’s most influential poets and translators. To make a secure donation to World Poetry Books, please click the button below.
