In order to be in the running for one of the two free copies, leave a comment to this here blog post - say hello and tell me you're "in," at the very least, but also feel free to share your favorite poetry book(s) of 2013, or your writing resolutions for 2014, or something on your wish list (experiences and actions preferred, but if you have a friend on Etsy.com who makes amazing jewelry, share away!).
Anyway, at the end of the week (on the "actual" Black Friday), I will number the comments one to whatever, then toss the numbers in a hat and have my daughter draw two of them. I will then contact the winners, get addresses, and send them their books completely postage free.
It's easy! You can't lose! It's fun! No fine print & no messy clean-up!
Like Anne Sexton, the business of words often keeps me awake. My favorite tulip? Queen of the Night. My books include The Little Office of the Immaculate Conception and Reckless Lovely. I also wrote a book of 366 writing prompts, one for every day of the year, with Kelli Russell Agodon: The Daily Poet, curate Beacon Bards, a 2nd Wednesday of the month poetry reading series at The Station in Seattle's Beacon Hill neighborhood, and serve as poetry editor of Crab Creek Review. Poems are forthcoming in The Cincinnati Review, North American Review, Orion, Southern Indiana Review, & Crab Orchard Review.
