The Big Poetry Giveaway 2011

Kelli Agodon is organizing this again, and since I have a book of my own this year, I figure I might as well get in on it. I’ll be giving away one copy of my book and one copy of Derek Walcott’s White Egrets. If you’re interested in them, just leave a comment with a valid email address linked to your name. Don’t put your email address in the comment–poetry is awesome, but it’s not worth exposing yourself to spammers. On May 1 or thereabouts, I’ll randomly select a winner and get a mailing address from them, and mail the books. Mine will be signed as well.

Happy National Poetry Month 2011!

  1. Brian, I didn’t know you have a book a poems out? I didn’t even know you had a blog outside of the Rumpus. How fantastic! Please please, sign me up for your giveaway!

  2. Please add me to your contest. You can contact me through the provided email address or by posting on or entering my contest on my blog (address above). And thank you for participating in the contest and spreading the words of poetry.

  3. I’d love to get in on the giveaway – my name is Mary Virginia Cooley and my email address is mcooley(at)gustavus(dot)edu! Happy National Poetry Month!

  4. Hi Brian, Happy National Poetry Month. It’s a pleasure to meet you. Thank you for offering your book of poetry. I would love to be included in your giveaway! Sincerely, Theresa

  5. You’re already responsible for the bulk of my burgeoning poetry collection, so I might feel slightly guilty if I were to randomly win, but not guilty enough to pass up the opportunity to win a signed copy of your own book.
