NATIONAL POETRY MONTH GIVEAWAY

April is National Poetry Month.
 
I almost missed it. I'm afraid I don't give poetry the attention it deserves, being more at home with prose. However, I have friends who are poets and who truly do know how to appreciate poetry. Two of these, Mark Lee Webb and Molly McCormack, have launched a new poetry journal, published twice a year, called A Narrow Fellow. The first issue was released this month.
 
 
 
Contributors include:
Steve Abbott
A. H. Jerriod Avant
Mark Brazaitis
Valentina Cano
Tobi Cogswell
Emily Dickinson
Lynnell Edwards
Jennifer Hambrick
James Harms
Jessica Jewell
Corey Mesler
Andy Roberts
Karen Schubert
Jeffrey Skinner
Frederick Smock
Caitlin Thomson
Sara Uribe (translated by Toshiya Kamei)
and Anne Whitehouse
 
Samples of some of the poems can be seen here.
 
 
In honor of National Poetry Month, I'm giving away a copy of this inaugural journal (the #1 fiction bestseller in Louisville this week!)
 
 
 
The Giveaway will run from today through next Sunday, May 5. It's open internationally. To enter, just leave a comment below with an email address so I can contact you.
