Poetry Book Giveaway for NaPoMo 2010!

Praise be to Kelli Russell Agodon for coming up with this Poetry Book Giveaway for National Poetry Month 2010 (a.k.a., April)! What better way to celebrate poetry than to share poetry books? Visit Book of Kells to see what it’s all about & check out the other participating blogs.

In a nutshell: Starting now until April 30, 2010, whoever leaves a comment to this post will be entered in drawings for 2 free poetry books. One of the books I’m giving away is my own, Hunger All Inside. The second is Longing Distance, by Sarah Hannah, the first book of a wonder-full poet lost too soon. Click on her book cover to read some sample poems over at the Tupelo Press website. My extra copy of this collection predates my involvement with the press — it’s a treasure I’m happy to share. I’ll announce the winners on May 1.

Note: Thank you to all who’ve entered! As an added bonus, I’ve decided to also giveaway a subscription to my favorite poetry journal, Cave Wall. Check it out by clicking on the cover below.
