We're Back For 2008
I'm so thrilled you decided to stop by Farrar, Straus and Giroux's National Poetry Month blog. And on the first day of April no less: you are a smart person.
Because as you learned last year, like spring, or poets, FSG's poetry month blog doesn't last forever--it runs just for 30 days, the length of National Poetry Month. True, it's barely long enough for me to scratch the surface of all the great poets FSG has on its roster. It's best if you think of this as more of a personal challenge to yourself. I'll provide you with a little taste of the offerings on tap, but it's up to you to go to the store, buy the books, and continue your appreciation of poetry for the rest of the year.
To make sure you keep coming back, here's a little preview of what I have upcoming this month.
- Of course, we had to bring you a new ringtone, recorded just for you by one of FSG's most illustrious poets;
- More audio of some of greatest poets, including a long-time FSGer who somehow managed to escape recording for us last year, even though he had a new book out;
- A whole week devoted exclusively to poetry in
- All-new downloadable posters (guaranteed to brighten up even the saddest cubicle), guest bloggers, and giveaways.
Be sure to add us to your RSS feed, if you haven't already, and be sure to check out the totally sweet widget you can add to your blog, myspace, or facebook account to be the coolest grad student at the mixer.
Thanks again for reading! Be sure to visit later today for a round-up of last year's highlights.
