Gosh, I was so focused on planning prompts for April that I almost forgot about the Big Poetry Giveaway! Many thanks to Kelli Russell Agodon for hosting/continuing this tradition, and thanks to Elizabeth Austen for the reminder.
But it’s okay, because you have until the end of April 30th to enter.
What I’ll be giving away:
In Both Hands, my new book of poems from Ravenna Press. Kelli’s instructions include the option of talking about writing process–and, to me, this book is a lot about process. (I’m happy to chat craft and process at any time.) Poems in sections (aggregation and then cutting–juxtaposition), prose poems, crazy map poems with six beats per line–with a few “straight-forward” poems for balance.
The Last Time I Saw Amelia Earhart, by Gabriella Calvocoressi. I’ve read many fine poetry books so far, so it’s hard to choose. But this book did indeed knock me on my ass, in the best way.
To enter, just leave a comment on this post before midnight PDT April 30th. On May 1st, I’ll put all the names in a box and ask my husband to draw two. You could be one of the winners.
Then visit Book of Kells to see the whole list of people giving away books. And if you want to join in the giving away, you can get all the details there.
