In honor of National Poetry Month, I will once again be giving away some poetry books in April. Thank you to Kelli Russell Agodon
for coming up with this great idea and getting so many people involved. What a nice way to share poetry (our own and others' work that we admire) with one another.
The books I'm giving away are:
1. Subject to Change
, my book of poems about love and art and music and movies, published by New Issues in 2004.
2. Disappears in the Rain
, my chapbook-length poem set in Japan, written (very) loosely in the traditional renga linked verse form and published by Parlor City in 2009.
3. The History of Anonymity
, the debut collection from Jennifer Chang
, published in the VQR Poetry Series in 2008.
4. Holding Company
, the most recent book by Major Jackson
, published by WW Norton last year.
The rules are simple: Leave your name and email address or blog address in the comments below by midnight EST on April 30th for your chance to win one of these books. On approximately May 1, I'll put all of those names in a hat and pick the winners. If you win one of these books, I will mail it to you. That's right -- free poetry delivered right to your door (or P.O. box)!
