Prairie Schooner is giving away a free book with each subscription (new or renewal) while supplies last, your choice of Famous by Kathleen Flenniken or Nocturnal America by John Keeble. Since I'd already had Famous on my wishlist and had been thinking about subscribing to Prairie Schooner (it's one of the journals I subscribe to off and on), I figured it was a sign that I needed to buy myself a present.
I must think I have been a very good girl this year, considering how many presents I've bought myself lately. Poetry books, mostly. Hey, someone has to keep people like Rebecca and Ivy and Suzanne in business!
Anyway, here's the link, in case you've been a good girl/boy/other and deserve some presents too (and happen to like this kind of stuff).
Now I need to print out the packet o'poems I've been putting together & get it ready to mail out tomorrow. I'm trying to get a few packets shipped out before the holidays, just to have them out there. Mainly I just don't want to get out of the habit -- when sending stuff out starts to feel like a big deal one way or the other, and not something as routine as paying bills, that's when I put it off and don't get around to doing it.
