Susan Rich over at The Alchemist’s Kitchen is guest curating the fourth year of the poetry extravaganza known as The Big Poetry Giveaway. Seeing as it’s The Cruelest (aka National Poetry) Month, I thought I’d get on board, and you can, too. If you want to get with the giving, go to Susan’s place and sign yourself up–you have until April 10!
This is the deal: leave a comment here with your name and at the end of the month I will draw the names of two readers (using the Random Number Generator) who will each get a free book of poetry. If you go to Susan’s blog you’ll see a long list of folks who are also doing poetry freebies—so get surfing, and get your poetry on!
One person will get a free copy of my brand spanking new book, Grass Whistle, and I’m also giving away a copy of Maya Janson’s new book, Murmur & Crush, just out from Hedgerow Books. And maybe some more, we’ll see what happens.
I’ll say more about The Giveaway and these books soon, but for now…here’s what some folks have said about Maya’s book:
“Wide-open love of the world and its mad inhabitants is one of the holiest of the heart’s affections. And that’s what you get in Maya Janson’s Murmur & Crush—total acceptance of the as-is world, seduced into being by that beautiful tag team, Bemusement and Sorrow.” —David Rivard
“Maya Janson’s richly evocative poems embody through visible things the turbulent cross-currents of the interior world where one thing spawns another in a wild tumult of images, producing an exuberant vision of beauty outlasting what destroys it.” —Eleanor Wilner
So, you could buy a bunch of Powerball tickets or…you can leave Pokey a comment for free and take a chance at getting one of these fabulous books.
No purchase necessary. No obligation. No time-share tour. Let the words begin!
