The Big Poetry Giveaway 2011!

I just found out about The Big Poetry Giveaway 2011 and I'm stoked to participate. Thanks to Marie for posting about it on her blog AND for giving away such cool subscriptions.

For those of you who are new to the project, you can check out the details at Kelli Russel Agodon's blog Book of Kells. I will be giving away two subscriptions and two books.


If you want a chance to win, simply comment on this post anytime during the month of April. During the first week of May, I will use a Random Number Generator to pick the winners.

I love doing this kind of thing; it reminds me of when Bitch had their call for subscriptions and I gave away three. It's great to put a book or magazine in the hands of someone who might not have found it otherwise.

In other National Poetry Month news, I'm participating in the Poem-A-Day Challenge and you should too! Today's prompt: what got you here - now go write a poem!

Indeed wonderful, a subscription to magazine is a great way to introduce poetry into the heart as is the pleasure of holding a book from someone you have never heard of.
Will be very happy to have my name (or number) in your basket.

blessings,
D!

(O, you are very welcome to join in my giveaway)

Subscriptions, books, if it's free and it's poetry, I'm in. (If it's free and it's not poetry, I'm probably still in. If it's poetry but not free, I might still be in but would have to think about it slightly harder.)
