The Big Poetry Giveaway
As part of NaPoWriMo, the Alchemist's Kitchen Blog is facilitating a poetry book give away & I've decided to get amongst it.
The bloggers involved have been asked to give away one collection of poetry they love and one collection of their own work. I don't have a collection that it solely my own but I have featured in two different anthologies. Most recently, Land Lines: an anthology of regional poets edited by Sue Gillett and a while ago, Seasons of Childhood, an anthology of poems put together by The Aardvarkers Poetry Group.
I've decided to give away Margaret Atwood's Selected Poems 1965-1975 because it contains my favourite poem ever, the first poem to give me real goose bumps and make me catch my breath: This Is A Photograph Of Me. Those of you who know it, I'm sure will know what I mean.
So, do you want to win a poetry book? You do? Then leave a comment below with your email address and I'll draw the winner out of a hat (or a bowl, or some other receptacle) on the 1st of May, 2013. Why not tell me who's your favourite poet while you're at it? If you're one of the winners you can let me know later which of mine you'd prefer; Land Lines or Seasons of Childhood.
Follow this link the Alchemist's Kitchen page that contains the list of participating blogs to increase your poetry-book-receiving chances or to sign up if you're a blogger who would like to give away a couple of poetry books.
