It is really hard to be lonely very long in a world of words.
~ Naomi Shihab Nye
Indie publisher BOA Editions Ltd. is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. In April, at AWP 2016, in Los Angeles, California, BOA premiered a short promotional film about poetry and its meaning to those who write it and read it. The short, made by Steve Fisher of Fisher Media, also includes a group of BOA's authors, who talk about their relationship with the publisher.
As part of its anniversary events, the press published a limited-edition chapbook, The Word from His Song*, by Li-Young Lee.
BOA publishes poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translations.
