national poetry month

During National Poetry Month, I accepted entries to win one of two poetry books.

I’m pleased to announce that Dan Johnson won a copy of my very own Midnight Voices.

Shelly Holder won a copy of Pablo Neruda’s Twenty Love Songs and a Poem of Despair.

Please email your address to deborah (at) 32poems [.] com.


To celebrate National Poetry month, several poetry bloggers agreed to offer free poetry books via their blogs. In most cases, the blogger poet offers one copy of their own book and one book belonging to a poet whose work they love — all free!

To enter your name, post a comment on any of the blogs below. Be sure to post your comment in the blog post about the contest in order to be considered.

Of course, we’re giving away free poetry books here at 32 Poems. Be sure to enter the contest. We’ll put all the names in a hat and pull out the winners.
