The Big Poetry Giveaway 2013

We're only a few days away from the beginning of NaPoWriMo, and I just found something that makes it truly worth celebrating (well...aside from the Fort Knox-ian wealth of poetry we're all on the cusp of...obviously.).

Susan Rich and Kelli Russell Agodon are heading up this giveaway that I am particularly thrilled about and excited to take part in. The Big Poetry Giveaway 2013 is essentially a chance for you, the reader, to stock up on some fantastic books of poetry while I, the blogger, get to give away fantastic books of poetry (and possibly acquire some myself in the process).

Read here for all the details, but what it boils down to is each participating blogger will give away two books of poetry to two lucky readerse once NaPoWriMo is completed, so at the beginning of May. The cool thing for me is that one of the two books can be your own book of poetry, and as I just so conveniently have one (Ars Golgothica: A Collection of Poems), this is quite the lovely opportunity for me, and for you, dear reader!

So, what will I be giving away?

Book one: Ars Golgothica, my aforementioned book of poetry, a collection long in the making and one I am particularly proud of.
Book two: Sunrise O'clock by Hillary Kobernick. Her poetry is like worship drifting from the whorled mouths of nature, transcendental and reverent, spirited and wise, like Hypatia taking communion. In other words, her writing is awesome, and you should want this book much more than mine.

The way to enter yourself is to comment on this post with your name and email address at some point throughout NaPoWriMo. It will be a random draw at the end of the month, one of the two books to two lucky readers who have commented here.

So, stick around throughout April! And don't just hover around my blog, there are a nice handful of other bloggers participating as well. If you're the luckiest person on the planet, that could mean about 12-15 books of poetry coming your way! You'll never know unless you enter...

Soli Deo Excelsior!
