The Big Poetry Giveaway!

Thanks to Kelli Russell Agodon and Susan Rich for spearheading The Big Poetry Giveaway once again this April for National Poetry Month.

I am giving away a copy of my fourth collection of poetry, Reckless Lovely, just released from Saturnalia Books, along with a copy of David Daniel's Clean, the just-released winner of the Four Way Books Intro Poetry Prize.

To enter to win, post a comment on Blue Positive letting me know you're in.

At the end of the month, I will number all comments and pick two from a hat. The first drawn will receive Reckless Lovely; the second will receive Clean. Ready, set, go!


Winner of the Four Way Books Intro Poetry Prize, Chosen by D.A. Powell




Aimee Nezhukumatathil writes "Martha Silano's poetry is gloriously street-smart and fully roaming and ripe. I want to slow-clap when she fixes her exacting gaze on warthogs, space probes, millipedes, or miracles. These stunning pages, like a "land-less landmass, [a] dollop-y desert dessert unloosed," fold moments of joy into something 'Reckless Lovely,' with inventive, chewy language, and a relentless appreciation of music and delight."

Hi Martha,
I would love to enter the drawing for either of these books...am especially interested in reading your work. I love the cover of "Reckless Lovely" since I'm a "bee nerd" and my nickname is Wild Honey!

Thanks so much,

Oh I am so in! Blue Positive is a book I keep coming back to. I think I have read "Poem In French" to every member of my immediate and extended family.

Martha Silano said...

Thanks for your kind words. "Poem in French" is on a t-shirt! I wrote it based on an exercise by Kary Wayson, a wonderful poet and poetry teacher.
