Founded in 1972, Copper Canyon Press has published more than 250 titles, including books by Nobel laureates Pablo Neruda, Octavio Paz, and Czeslaw Milosz; Pulitzer Prize-winners Carolyn Kizer, Maxine Kumin, and W.S. Merwin; National Book Award winners Hayden Carruth and Lucille Clifton; and other well-known poets such as Jim Harrison, C.D. Wright, and Norman Dubie.
