Hi everyone! It may be hard to believe, but I have been a book blogger for almost four years now. In all that time, I have never hosted an event on my blog. I’ve had features where authors have guest posted, I’ve done interviews and blog tours, but never anything all me.
Well, that is changing! If you’ve seen my Twitter, you may see me posting fairly often that I am starting a tentatively month long event in April in honor of National Poetry Month.
I am seeking poetesses and poets to be featured on my humble blog. Here are some quick breakdowns:
*This event is open to traditionally published, self published and non-published poets.
*I am definitely wanting marginalized voices involved in this. If you are interested or know someone who may be interested, please let them know.
*You can have an interview with me via email or Twitter, an interview with a fellow poet, write a guest post, review a poet’s book, write a recommendations post, share an excerpt of your poetry (/book), or do another kind of special post. It’s all up to you!
* I would ideally have 28 people. This would give me the chance to do an opening post, two “guest” posts and a closing post. I want to have as many people involved as possible though, I will extend this to May to accommodate posts if I need to (I would love to).
* I would love guest posts especially. I have a shortage right now.
Possible Guest Post Topics (Feel free to write your own!)
*How you started writing
*What poetry means to you
*The poetry climate right now
*Extended hiatus from writing
*The traditional published journey
*The self-published journey
However, I may not receive 28 responses, if so, that is okay. I have a few posts I could write up myself. I would just like as many posts as possible.
Sign-ups will be tentatively closing March 8th.
I will send an email out discussing the schedule, giving out interview questions and hearing guest post ideas.
I would love any signal boost you give this post or my tweet (Please let me know if this is not the correct Google Form. One has just been showing editing options). Thanks!
Stay tuned because next month will be fantastic.
