I am happy to report the winners of the National Poetry Month Book Giveaway at “One Poet’s Notes,” the editor’s blog for Valparaiso Poetry Review, are Julie L. Moore and Molly C. Spencer. The two were chosen as the result of a random number generator selection, and they have been notified by email of their good fortune. Julie will receive a copy of Maxine Kumin’s Still to Mow, and Molly will receive a copy of Seeded Light, which I will sign.

I salute Kelli Agodon for initiating the book giveaway project to help celebrate April as National Poetry Month and for successfully obtaining participation by authors at more than 50 blogs. Also, I thank all the readers of “One Poet’s Notes” who entered their names in the contest. Congratulations to Julie and Molly!
