big poetry giveaway


It's that time of year again, and we have Kelli Russell Agodon to thank for the fifth annual Big Poetry Giveaway!  I will be giving away two copies of Nestuary as well as a copy of Lightning at Dinner by Jim Moore.  If you go to Kelli's blog, you can see links in her sidebar for the myriad giveaways going on this month.  All you have to do is leave your name and email address in the comments and I'll draw three winners at random.

I've kept this list, fireplace in winter, on Good Reads--books of poetry (and poetry-ish things) that have made my brain and heart zing.  Both, it's true.

I've been asked:  how can you help a poet or writer that you adore?  Go to their readings.  If it's at a bookstore and maybe you already have their books, buy others.  Booksellers notice who brings in book-buyer and might invite that writer back.  Write reviews--even the smallest note on a website like Good Reads or online bookselling websites make a big impact.  Tell them, tell others, buy their books for people who might be interested.  You know.  Love 'em.  Be their cheerleader.  I guess that's what fireplace in winter is about.  I have a prose version too.

PS:  Are you a poet too?  Consider submitting to Tinderbox Poetry Journal, which will launch June 21.  Check it out on the solstice too--we've got an amazing line-up, I promise.  We read poetry and hybrid forms, as well as critical work and the like.
