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!

  29. 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.

  30. If it’s not too late, please add my name to the hat. Thanks!
