The Big Poetry Giveaway: 2014 (Coming Soon!)

So for the last 5 years, I've been doing this Big Poetry Giveaway.  Last year, I was in London, so Susan Rich was kind enough to handle it for me.

Today I looked at the calendar date and realized... it's almost that time! And YES, it will happen again.


The BIG POETRY GIVEAWAY is an event that will begin Thursday, March 27th and go through April 30th.

Basically, poets and people with blogs that want to give away 2 poetry books (one can be their own, but the other must by a poet they love) will create a post and anyone can leave a comment to be entered in the drawing for the two books.

Yes, they can give away more than two poetry books (but ONE book must be by a poet they love!) 

And yes, they can also give away a subscription to a favorite literary journal, or a broadside they have, or a first edition book, but TWO BOOKS must be books of poems.

If you want to participate as a blogger and give away two books of poems, check back here on March 27th to see how to do it (I'll be adding blog posts to our list of poet bloggers giving away books from March 27 - April 6th, 2014.)

The only thing required of bloggers is they giveaway 2 books of poems (one can be your own) and that you will mail them to ANYWHERE in the world.

If you want to participate as a reader and possible winner, check back here on March 24 and THROUGHOUT National Poetry Month to enter your name in the different drawings.

So that's the scoop!

See you on the 27th with more info on how to participate!
