Hi Erika:

In honor of National Poetry month, Kelli Russell Agodon over at Book of Kells came up with this great idea for a poetry giveaway: What if bloggers all over the world gave away two books of poetry this month to their readers -- one of their own, and one from a poet they admire?

I saw that you linked to one of the bloggers via Twitter. But you might not know that there are now 42 bloggers (and a journal!) participating in this free giveaway! Isn't that awesome?!

If you go to Kelli's blog, she's got a running list of participating blogs down the left-hand side of the screen. The contest runs through April. I thought your readers might want to drop by the blogs, comment, and win free poetry books! :)
