The Big Poetry Giveaway! 2011

This month, I will be participating in two wonderful events in honor of National Poetry Month -
  • NaPoWriMo - where I will write a poem a day, every day for 30 days (more about this soon...) and,
  • The Big Poetry Giveaway! 2011 - where I will give a copy of my chapbook Inheritance AND a copy of Tender Buttons by Gertrude Stein.  The Big Poetry Giveaway is organized by Kelli Russell Agodon (see http://ofkells.blogspot.com/2011/03/big-poetry-giveaway-2011.html for more information).

    If you would like me to send you a copy of both my book and Gertrude Stein's book (for free!) just post a comment on my blog with your name and contact information.  At the end of April, I will randomly choose one name and send off a copy of both books in the mail.  For more information about Gertrude Stein's book and my book, please see below. Good luck! 

Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons: Objects, Food, Rooms from 1914.  In this book Stein reinvigorates words. One of my all time favorite books of poetry
.

My book, Inheritance was published by Finishing Line Press in June 2010. It is a sonnet sequence of American sonnets.

Thanks for doing this giveaway. Would love to read your poetry. The Stein book looks good too -- I'm more familiar with her prose than her poetry.

Feel free to enter my giveaway over at my blog, too!
