Big Poetry Giveaway!



I'm way stoked to participate in the most-excellent brainchild of Kelli Russell Agodon, the 2011 Great Poetry Giveaway. Comment on this blog-post (make sure to include your email address, so I have a way to contact you!) anytime between now and April 30th, and you'll be entered to win one of the the two books below as a celebration of National Poetry Month. I'll choose two commenters using a random number generator and mail those folks a copy of one of the following books. A little info on the books and why they're here:

1)
After the Ark is my first collection of poetry, published in January of 2011 by NYQ Books.



2)
District and Circle by Seamus Heaney is the other book I'm giving away. Heaney is my favorite living poet and is one of the reasons I love poetry. This book is full of superb sonnets.


Comment on, blogosphere! Happy poetry month!

Woo hoo, National Poetry Month! Are you trying to do the NaPoWriMo challenge and write a poem a day?

Aw yeah. Happy poetry month to you. Just clicked over to your blog for the first time and am enjoying it. And these poetry collections are choice, I'd say. Call me commentor!

I saw your link on Kelli's blog and remembered that we were both in the same recent issue of NYQ. That's a little bit cool.
