Looking for Women Poets Who Are Looking for a Broader Audience

Kelli Agodon & I are putting together our famous "Welcome Baskets" for the poets of Poets on the Coast: A Writing Retreat for Women and want to include one book of poetry by a woman poet for each of our participants.

We will also be creating a Reading List / Donor List for our participants and your name & book title will be included here.

We see this as a sort of "weekend mentorship" for your book to connect with another writer over the weekend and to be there with her when she returns to her room to write.

If you have a book (or maybe 2) of poems you'd be willing to donate, we'd love include you.

Our participants come from all over the country (and sometimes the world!) and we'd love to share your work with these women.

If you're interested in participating, you can mail your books to me (before August 31) at:

Susan Rich
PO Box 16035
Seattle WA 98116

Thank you in advance for joining forces with us. This is a wonderful opportunity to find a group of new and dedicated readers for your work. And if you want, drop me a note at srich18(at) gmail .com to let me know you're sending a book (or two).
