I came across a list at Goodreads called "Favorite Poets of Color" and it gave me an idea for a mini-challenge here at the POC Reading Challenge blog. I wish I would have thought of it earlier in the month, but we've still got 2 weeks left. Through the end of April, write up a blog post about a poet of color. It can be a review of a poetry book, it can be a spotlight on a poet of color, it can be a list of some of your favorite poets of color, it can be a poem written by one of your favorite poets of color. I'm opening it up to any kind of post as long as it focuses on poets of color. Let's limit entries to one a day per person. :-)
I have a couple of poetry books here that I will offer up as prizes to participants and I'll pick two winners randomly out of all of the entries. I'm happy to send to international participants as well.
What can you win?**Note for the FTC: I bought these books with my own money.
I'm offering The Book of Light by Lucille Clifton (gently used), Burnt Sugar: Contemporary Cuban Poetry in English and Spanish, and She Had Some Horses by Joy Harjo (gently used)**. The winners will get to choose one of these books. :)
