Big Poetry Giveaway!

 A little about me: My name is Jenn, l like to write poetry, blog,  daydream about 
Benedict Cumberbatch, read anything science-y, adore sarcastic banter, enjoy playing with my chihuahua Rufus and believe kindness makes the world go round.

Now to the fun stuff! 

You know why I love April?

Well, lots of reasons. Seriously TONS!

But I'm going to make this easy for you and get to the point because I am sweet like that.

April is National Poetry Month!

Besides committing myself to a poem a day and participating in some open mic opportunities in my local area to celebrate National Poetry Month I have decided to host my first giveaway inspired by Kelli Russell Agodon, (otherwise known as Kells), the person who started this event for poetry lovers.

Please check out her blog post HERE which has a full listing of blogs participating in the giveaway!

Go on click that link above and enter as many as you'd like.



 Okay, l know you are telling me to shut up and get on with it so l will.

The first book of poetry l shall be giving away is by my absolute favorite poet and activist, Andrea Gibson-Pole Dancing to Gospel Hymns.

lt is full of some of my favorite poems and l think anyone would be lucky to get this book.



 My second giveaway is possibly childish, but oh so soul invigorating that it is worth that trip down memory lane-
Shel Silverstein's Where The Sidewalk 
Ends.

This book is awesome. lf you never read it ( and don't win it) you should seriously buy it, or rent it from the library or "borrow" it from your friends' bratty kid.

You'd probably appreciate it more anyways.



The third book, (yes l said third giveaway-huzzah) is a little more eclectic. You should have a hint since Poetic is in my blog title, that l write as well. 

This one will be a chapbook with some of my poetry in it for your reading pleasure. Since it's not completed in its entirety at this point I shall post a pic of a cute otter.

You're welcome.

 So.

What do l need you to do?

Let me know you are interested!

Comment below with your name 
& email address and that gets you entered into the drawing.

The contest will go until the end of April 2014 and winners will be selected & notified first week of May via email.

Good luck!

  13. What awesome titles for those books. I love Shel Silverstein! You have made me aware that I don't actually own any of his books. That must be remedied.

  17. I gave my 8-year-old nephew his first Shel book for Christmas. The humor and thoughts are right up his alley. Strangely though I realized I don't own any of the books myself!! Thanks for participating in this giveaway!
