Big Poetry Giveaway 2014!!





Okay so here is the big poetry giveaway deal: 

I will be giving away one copy of my poetry chapbook Her Vena Amoris (and possibly another of my chapbooks if all goes well).

I will also be giving away What Animal by Oni Buchanan.  This is a fabulous book--I love Oni because she reminds me of some of the Swedish poets I love, she is uber-creative and talented (she plays classical piano as well as writes fabulous poems) and well here is the opening few lines from "The Ginea Pig and the Green Balloon":

I approached the luminous stranger who came to me
from darkness in a gown of lettuce leaves, in a velvet

cloak of green that appeared at first another piece of dark,


so that should tempt anyone.  I may also throw in a copy of The Journal, Winter 2014, in which a poem of mine appears.

So there you have it!  If you want to enter, please leave a comment and I will put your name in a hat come May. 

If you are interested in participating as a blogger, here is a link to Kelli's blog that explains all the details. 

Good luck!  And happy poetry month!
