The Big Poetry Giveaway



Last year I participated in the Annual Big Poetry Giveaway as a recipient, and this year I'm happy to join in by offering two books to two lucky winners.


What is the Big Poetry Giveaway? It's a celebration of National Poetry Month, organized by poet Kelli Russell Agodon, in which bloggers hold drawings to give away 2 books of poetry (often one of their own and one of someone else's) to lucky winners. Go to Agodon's blog to find a list of other bloggers participating, or to sign up to participate as a giver of poetry yourself.

This year I am offering the following two books:

1) The Insomniac's Weather Report, by me.

Picture





















2) Yuba Flows, an anthology from Hip Pocket Press including poetry by Kirsten Casey, Gary Cooke, Cheryl Dumesnil, Judy Halebsky, Iven Lourie, & Scott Young. I came to know about this anthology from the very talented poet Judy Halebsky, who is included in this edition.



To win, leave a comment below, with your name and a way to contact you should you win (can be an email address or a blog address or a website). I'll use a random number generator during the first week of May to determine winners. Stay posted for that.

Additionally, guest blogger Mari L'Esperance offers two books for the Big Poetry Giveaway at another post on this blog here.

I'm so glad you two signed up! I was starting to worry that I'd be the only person in the world to offer something for free and have no takers!

Jessica Goodfellow said...

Molly, I've tried leaving a comment at your blog a few times over the past couple of days, but it never shows up. Other people don't seem to be having any trouble, but I sure am. Thought you'd want to know.
