Surprise Poetry Book

40


40 per package - Virtual OK

I have two copies of several poetry collections.

I accidentally bought second copies.

That's why I'd like to mail random books of modern poetry to fellow Simbis within the United States and Canada. I can probably do other countries, too; ask me about it, and I'll check S&H costs online.

The book will be mailed via media mail, so please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery.

If you have specific interests, let me know.

The poetry will not rhyme.

Most of it is 21st century poetry. Some of it is late 20th century.

I like leaving poetry collections in different spaces where I can relax and savor language. Poetry reminds me how to slow down; how to read for the pleasure of reading. I have a strong preference for poems about nature and change, although I also seek collections about family, culture, and mental illness. I believe reading poetry makes for better poetry writing, and poetry writing makes for a happier brain...so why not read poetry?

Training & Qualifications


I attended graduate school in a lovely creative writing program. I studied in several graduate-level poetry courses. I've published poetry in literary journals. I've won poetry awards. I've got taste, yo.

Availability & Preferences


I'll mail poetry books out on Fridays.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Kourtnie McKenzie

Hi, I'm Kourtnie, a community college professor with an MFA in Creative Writing and BA in English, and I'm obsessed with stories. I'm published in print and online journals, and I write regularly on W...attpad and WordPress. Before graduate school, I was a professional copyeditor, copywriter, and community manager. When I'm not writing, I'm reading. I'm a total Kindle junky, a Book of the Month member, and I read Medium, Wattpad, WordPress, and Wikipedia whenever I can carve five minutes between student and work responsibilities. While I teach English at the community college, I'm also a student there, currently enrolled in programming courses. I like learning math on Brilliant and Blender on Skillshare. I'm also an RPG Maker MV and Dungeons & Dragons hobbyist. I'd like to publish games on the web, as well as iOS and Android devices, in the next few years. I'm autistic and involved in the Twitter #ActuallyAutistic community. The cat lover side of me is active on Instagram. I'd rather have a swivel chair than Trump for president.show more
