Anyone in the mood today for a stuffed artichoke? My poem, "The First Artichoke," is featured at Lisa Morgan's food blog, Champaign Taste. If you like food, be sure to visit and visit often. Lisa posts exquisite photos of fantastic dishes and offers lots of mouth-watering recipes. She's also a poetry lover, so often posts some tasty poems. I am honored that she is serving up mine.
In other tasty business, Kelli Russell Agodon has initiated the Poetry Book Giveaway to celebrate National Poetry Month. Quite a few poet-bloggers have signed on already. Visit Kelli's site for the list. Each participant offers to give away two poetry books and to mail them to the lucky winners. I have perused my shelves and am now officially adding my name and titles to the list.
Kelli has the complete rules at her site. Here's the nutshell version:
• Leave a comment on this post any time before May 1st, 2010.
• Include your name and a way to be contacted if/when you win.
• Check back on May 1st for a list of winners.
Sometime on May 1st I will randomly select the winners. The first will receive a copy of my book, What Feeds Us.
For a sample poem, check out The First Artichoke. My poem, "Linguini," is also linked at the same site. Or check any of the links in my sidebar.
The second lucky winner will receive a copy of Meg Kearney's book, Home by Now. This book was recently named a finalist in the Poetry category of ForeWord Review's Book of the Year Awards contest. If you would like to see a sample poem, check out Meg's Living in the Volcano
