Winners for Letters from the Emily Dickinson Room & No Sweeter Fat!
First, thank you all for being part of the Big Poetry Giveaway. I'm glad to host it and it's always a treat to learn about new poets and bloggers in the community. And so many people participated in giving away books and also, entering the contest. Love it!
I went to the random number generator to choose the winners this morning and here's what lucky numbers came up.
For my book:
Letters From the Emily Dickinson Room (White Pine Press Poetry Prize)
Winner: Lorna Dee Cervantes - who will get a copy of my book sent to her home. Congrats!
And for Nancy Pagh's book:
No Sweeter Fat
Winner: Maureen Doallas! I will send a copy of Nancy's book to her (and she will love it!)
And since this event is also to share poets & poetry with each other, I realized that both of my winners were published poets, so I wanted to take a moment to also highlight them...
One of Lorna Dee Cervantes's many books is Drive: The First Quartet: New Poems, 1980-2005
and Maureen Doallas is the author of Neruda's Memoirs: Poems
(can I tell you how much I love that title?)
So congratulations to both winners, both poets, both readers!
