Kelli Russell Agodon. Each year she encourages poets to give away 2 books of poetry, and you can read her guidelines here and check out the books she is giving away here!
Nocturnes, just out from Hyacinth Girl Press. If you want to win them, leave a comment on this blog and some safe version of your email address [spell out "dot" and "at" to avoid spam] and I will contact you in early May, and ask for your address if you are the name I pull out of the hat. Or little green basket.
If I have another duplicate of something by then--book or journal--I will throw that into the package, too!
I love to read: short stories, novels, poetry, essays, memoir & biography, nonfiction, especially science and history. A book I want to read that I haven't got from the library yet is All the Devils Are Here. Another book I hope to read this summer is The Art of Fielding. Baseball novel. Ish.
I'll be drafting a poem a day in April, with a poetry workshop I teach and another group I know online. It's an intense thing to do, but I love doing it because I always end up with a bunch of stuff that gets revised into real poems! And sometimes a few "gift" poems, those that fall out whole by grace!
If you are writing a poem a day, too, have fun! If you want to participate in the giveaway by giving books away, click on Kelli's guidelines! If you want a chance to receive these books, leave a comment below with your email. If you just want to comment, that's fine, too! Always happy to hear from you.
