For twenty years our books have proven indispensable to professors offering creative writing courses, Asian, African American, Queer and Gender Studies as well as a wide variety of cross-cultural and cross-discipline areas of study. Tupelo Press titles have been taught at colleges and universities across the country, from California to Maine, Oregon to Florida.
Tupelo Press is committed to assisting educators not only with a choice of book(s) to enrich their curriculums, but also with a range of tools and resources to enhance reading and discussion. Below you will find links to resources for teaching our poetry collections, anthologies, translation projects, and prose works. These resources include potential reading lists, sample assignments, suggested pairings of complementary texts based on your discipline and teaching interest.
We have also included one of our most valuable resources for institutions: reader’s companions. These guides shed invaluable light on the creative process and offer intriguing materials for discussion. All of the below resources are offered free of charge and may be freely shared with your students.
We are always delighted to send inspection copies of any of our titles, for your consideration.
For all desk or inspection copy requests, please fill out this form and we’ll be sure to send one right out.
