The Big Poetry Giveaway 2013





Hey All,

I'm participating in the big poetry giveaway.  I am giving away my chapbook, Ophelia Unraveling, as well as Sarah Hannah's Longing Distance.  Sarah Hannah reminds me often of Sylvia Plath, which is pretty much the highest compliment I can give.

Here's just a snippet from "Rumination":

Were my mouth to find yours in the gloom
Of dying promises--canted, mid-sentence,
Mid-phrase or quotation--were I on a lark
To marry wood, the hard pine panels
Of this room, your lips, the rivulet
Tips of your lingering sweats,
Who would I be then?

So, yeah.  You want this book. Leave a comment between now and April 30 and I'll pull a name out of the hat and contact you.  That's it! 

If you want to participate as a blogger, please check out Susan Rich's info here

A little bit about me:

In addition to Ophelia Unraveling, I will also have a chapbook, The Ornithologist Poems, coming out from Dancing Girl Press this next year.  I blog about poetry stuff that's on my mind as well as birds I see out on my daily (-ish) walk.  I'm a writing tutor who lives in Massachusetts and travels occasionally, most recently to Australia. 
 

Good luck and Happy National Poetry Month!

  7. Hello Carol
    What an excellent idea! Happy Poetry Month from the North Coast of New South Wales, Australia! It is nice to read that you have been here recently , although I want to know which bit you saw – it is a big country!!!
    I have scribbled for my poetry muse for YEARS, most recently posting on facebook 'Alexandra J Cornwell - Poet'. Last September I discovered the fun of 'drabbles' (100-word microfiction 'Byron Short Fiction 'Drabble' Writers'), although I am finding much inspiration in the non-fiction areas. I suppose it has been my way of blogging, though am thinking now that I’ll have to get my blogsite organized and get on with getting organized to publish some of my scribbles properly. I finally got around to joining a writer's group last week and did my first readers & writers festival in Bellingen 2 weeks ago (also attended and entered my first Poetry Slam event).

    1. Hi Alexandra,
      So nice of you to drop by all the way from South Wales!!! We were at Palm Cove and Brisbane for the eclipse in November--it was beautiful.
      So glad to hear of all your good work--I have never heard of "drabbles" before so thank you for introducing me to it! I do hope you publish your work--I would love to read it. Good luck with your writer's group! And thanks again for your comments!

  8. Carol! How great to find you in the Giveaway. I would love either book, have Hannah's "Inflorescence," which is indeed a wonderful book, missed _Longing Distance_ somehow. Count me in! --diane
