Win! Free Books for Poetry Month

Welcome to the 6th Annual Big Poetry Giveaway!

To celebrate National Poetry Month, poets across the globe are giving away books. Lucky you!

Playing is easy. To enter the drawing, simply leave a comment at the end of this blog post. On May 1st, I'll close my eyes, choose two names, and announce the winners. 

I'm giving away two books — my own and one of my favorites:

Thin Skin
by Drew Myron

A blend of black-and-white photos paired with tender, precise poems.

She is the poet laureate of vulnerability!

  — Molly Spencer, The Stanza

Thin Skin exposes the reader to life’s harsh elements, but also shows the way to refuge.

— Brian Juenemann
Pacific Northwest
Booksellers Association

What It Is
by Lynda Barry

Lynda Barry is a writer, illustrator and enthusiastic advocate for the arts. "Creativity is there in everybody, in everybody,” she says.

While not technically a poet, Barry embodies the creative, willing spirit that poetry requires. In fact, the Poetry Foundation featured Barry in this friendly and practical chat.
