The Big Poetry Giveaway 2012!

It’s the Big Poetry Giveaway of 2012!  This year, I am giving away two poetry collections.  Please leave your name and contact information if you are interested in winning a free poetry book! If you are new to this event, see more information on Kelli Russell Agodon’s blog.

….And the two books are….

Local World by Mira Rosenthal — Published just last year and winner of the Wick Poetry Prize Award, Rosenthal’s collection explores memory, helplessness in the time of crisis, and loss.  Take a look here for more information.

Wearing Heels in the Rust Belt by Karen J. Weyant  –  Yep, this is mine! Wearing Heels was just published this past February and was Main Street Rag’s Chapbook Contest winner of 2011. Check out Kathleen Kirk’s mini review for more information!

    Please enter me! Both of the books offered sound great, though as a former rust belt resident, yours is particularly compelling. I’ll probably have to buy it if I don’t win. 🙂
