Kelli Russell Agodon came up with the idea of the Big Poetry Giveaway as an opportunity for people to connect and share their love of poetry. The aim is simple: every participating blogger gives away two books of poetry during National Poetry Month. (And you must be willing to send them anywhere in the world, at your own expense.) One can be your own work, but the second should be someone else’s. This is our chance to bring a new audience to the poets we love to read.
After six great years with Kelli at the helm, I’m taking over hosting duties for Big Poetry Giveaway, and I’m thrilled. I’ll officially launch Big Poetry Giveaway on March 25th. On that day, I’ll put up a post with full guidelines for participation. So if you want to join this year, start thinking about the books you’d like to give away! And please help spread the word through your own blog and through other social media. I want to make sure everyone knows where to find the Giveaway this year!
