The Official Black Friday Daily Poet Giveaway!
I am not the biggest fan of a day devoted to buying up stuff like a fiend, but my reasoning is all summed up in one of my very favorite cliches: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
Oh, not only join 'em, but instead of slashing prices 40% or 50%, give something away for free!
Which is why I am giving away TWO FREE COPIES of The Daily Poet: Day-By-Day Prompts for Your Writing Practice, recently released by Two Sylvias Press and co-edited by me and Kelli Russell Agodon.
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!
