Poetry book lotto

I've decided to hold a lottery for National Poetry Month and give away copies of my chapbook Another Circle of Delight. I'll give away one a day every day in April. To enter, email me your name and address. If you're the first person on that day, I'll send you the chap. Write to:


I just read a terrific autobiography essay by C.K. Williams on the Academy of American Poets website. A rich resource for reading poetry. If you wanted to read a great poem a day, it would be a great place to go every April day for poetic stimulation.
