Big poetry giveaway

Kelli Russell Agodon, over at her blog, The Book of Kells, is hosting a poetry giveaway during National Poetry Month, which on the West Coast, starts in about 3 hours. I love the idea, so I’ve decided to participate. This means that I will send two books of poetry to one lucky person, selected from among the throngs who respond to this post.

On May 1st, I will randomly choose a winner, and send you two recent books of poetry that I have fallen in love with:

Mean Free Path by Ben Lerner
Equal to the Earth by Jee Leong Koh

So keep those responses coming and you may be the winner!

    Risa, out of 30+ blogs listed on Kelli’s blog, I came here first because the name of your blog made me laugh. Now that I’ve wandered around a bit, I think I’ll be hanging out here. What a rich and wonderful place.

  7. Joyce, Chella, Kathleen, Margo, Shannon– thanks for stopping by. And thanks for staying a while. Happy poetry month!

    Miriam- you’re not obligated to write a poem, but I highly recommend it.
