The Big Poetry Giveaway 2014!

Day one of NaPoWriMo is drawing to a close. Mine's off to a pretty thrilling start. I've both produced and consumed some very enjoyable poetry. I've got good feelings about this year.

Anyway, on to business...






The Big Poetry Giveaway 2014!

This is my second year participating in Kelli Russell Agodon's annual giveaway of all things poetic and wondrous. Last year was such a blast, I'd be remiss in my literary duties if I passed up the chance to partake again.

How this all works is, I will be giving away two books of poetry to two very lucky and randomly-selected people. Simple and fun! You can learn more about this contest over at Kelli's blog, Book of Kells.

Now, for the deets:

How to Enter

Entering yourself in my contest is as simple as commenting on this post and expressing your interest sometime before the end of April. Post your name and email address, preferably, so I have a way of contacting you if your name is drawn at the end of the month. By May 1st, everyone who has posted here will be entered into the drawing. I will draw names that week and contact the winners promptly!

What You'll Win

The two books of poetry I will be giving away are: 

Songs from Under the River by Anis Mojgani
and
Ars Golgothica by...me! My first book of poetry, from 2012.

Anis Mojgani is a poet whose work never ceases to humble and exalt the spirit. I can think of few people I would rather promote throughout NaPoWriMo. This book is a fantastic collection for any lover of dynamic and soulful poetry.

Then, there is my book, Ars Golgothica. Years in the making, 60+ poems and each meaning the world to me. I would be glad to pass a copy on and I am certain, as diverse as the poems included are, there is something included for everyone.

So, that's all there is to it. If you want to win some free poetry, comment on this post and consider yourself entered.

Hope you all have a fantastic April and National Poetry-Writing Month!
