WINNERS!! - From the Great Poetry Book Giveaway!
First, let me thank all of you who participated either by hosting a poetry giveaway on your blog or by entering these contests. My hope with this project was to share our work as well as our favorite poets with each other. Even if you didn't win, I hope you found a new blog to follow, a new poet to look into, or just realized the amount of incredible poetry that is out in the world, many by authors we haven't discovered yet.
Now, with all that said, let's get to the WINNERS! and I have a stack of them since I hosted 2 other giveaways on my blog.
Since we have friends from Montana visiting this weekend, I will list the winners but contact them on Monday when my time is a little more leisurely.
If you're a winner and you see your name on this list, please email me at kelli (a) agodon.com with your mailing address and I'll get your book out to you this upcoming week.
Can I have the envelope, please?
