As promised last weekend, it’s giveaway time again.
Tomorrow only – Sunday July 3rd – Poems from the pueblo. Haiku and assorted fragments – will also be available as a free download.
A Poet’s Dozen is a collection of brief essays about the craft of poetry, adapted from articles originally published in The Woman Writer, the in-house magazine of the SWWJ. The book has a number of five-star reviews on Amazon.
Writing in circles starts by looking at points to consider when setting up a writers’ group; it also includes a series of first-person pieces based on the activities of a semi-fictional writers’ group – actually a composite of some of the many groups I’ve belonged to over the years. The final section – A Critter’s Companion – includes advice on how to deal with receiving critique, as well as my much copied and much plagiarised piece on how to critique poetry.
If you do download the books and enjoy them or find them useful, I’d really love it if you could leave a review.
I also mentioned last week that I’d started a SoundCloud page where I’ll be posting audio files of some of the poems I’ve posted here on the blog. I’ve added a few more tracks since then, and hope to continue to add more each week.
Finally, I think some people follow the blog more for the pictures than the words, so, for those who aren’t interested in all the bookish self-promotion and wordiness, thank you for bearing with me.
