I invite you to join me for a hands on poetry prompt celebration for my first book, November Butterfly (Saddle Road Press, November 2014). In support of Saddle Road Press, I’m running a new promotion: When you buy the Kindle version of November Butterfly, I will give away a beautiful 15 page PDF with prompts and images from the poetry movies. The prompts focus on the iconic figures addressed in November Butterfly and come with links to related poetry, poetry movies, and art. It is a beautiful booklet based on the prompts I originally ran one at a time here on this site. I thank you in advance for your support of poetry and your support of small presses.
