The Jake Adam York Prize for a first or second poetry collection is a collaboration between Copper Nickel and Milkweed Editions. Our goal in instituting the Jake Adam York Prize is to honor Jake’s name and legacy with a top-tier, ethical book prize that will offer not just publication but also high-quality design, marketing, and strong national distribution. Milkweed Editions—which has an excellent marketing team and distributes through Publishers Group West (PGW)—can offer these things. We at Copper Nickel are grateful and excited for their partnership.
