Poetry Giveaway 2010

In April, three of my favorite things will converge:
• poetry
• free stuff
• mail 

To celebrate National Poetry Month, a host of writers are sharing their love of poetry — with free poetry books! (Thanks to poet Kelli Agodon for orchestrating this worldwide event). For my part, I am giving away two books to two lucky winners (includes free shipping to anywhere in the world).

How to Win:
• Leave a comment on this post any time before May 1, 2010. 
   Include your name and contact info. 
• On May 1, two winners will be chosen in a random drawing of names. 
• Check back and see if you are a winner!

Win these Books: 


A word-art collaboration featuring poems by Drew Myron and interpretive paintings by Tracy Weil. 



The Real Warnings, by Rhett Iseman Trull

Winner of the 2008 Anhinga Prize for Poetry, the Real Warnings earned high praise from poet/judge Sheryl St. Germain: “Open this book up anywhere and you'll find a poem of fierce and uncompromising energy and insight . . . I've never read a poet who understands more fully the brutal paradoxes of love and of loving damaged things.”
• Enter now!  Good luck and good reading.

Please, can I win your work. This is not a way to ingratiate myself. I need art.
