It’s almost April, so it’s time for a month of being hyper-focused on poetry. For me, that is most months, but play along, okay? I am again participating in the Big Poetry Giveaway established six years ago by poet Kelli Russell Agodon. It is a way for us to spread the poetry we love to other people and maybe introduce ourselves to poets we may not have read.
How does it work? Leave your name and email in the comments section, and at the end of April, I will randomly select two winners to receive a book a poems. (Visit Kelli’s blog for links to participating bloggers and enter your name all over the place.) That’s it! It’s easy, right? So what could you win?
1. A House of Many Windows
This is my first collection that was published in 2013 by Sundress Publications. I am very proud of the poems within and of its beautiful matte cover by photographer Christine Shank. I will send a few little extra surprises along with this book!
2. Thunderbird- Dorothea Lasky, Wave Books, 2012
Lasky’s collection Rome is currently getting a lot of attention, but this earlier collection from Wave Books is one to check out. Lasky is one of those poets that people seem to really like or really dislike – if you win, you can find out into which camp you fall!
So what are you waiting for? Leave a comment!
Also, in honor of National Poetry Month, I will be attempting to remember to post a poem I love every day in April at my Facebook author page – swing by and take a peek!
