The Big Poetry Giveaway 2013
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!
