"..So here's to that identity, to that quality of humanity, the ability to take the ingredients of the world and brew poetry." -Brewing
I sifted through poems I've written between 2004-2011, cleaned up the good ones and put together my first full-length book of poetry! Watch the video for a reading of the poem Brewing. It is one of my favorites from the book, but be sure to expect a variety of styles and lengths of poems in the full text. Enjoy!
When pledging $, a few things to keep in mind:
I have set a low funding goal since I do not receive any funds unless the goal is met. I'm really just trying to cover printing and shipping costs, so the amount I need is directly proportional to the number of copies needed. Also I will lose about 10% to Kickstarter and Amazon fees (you end up sending funds through Amazon). This kickstarter page expires on Thanksgiving, at which time I should be able to see your shipping info and contact you about rewards. Please see the rewards along the right side bar on your screen. Note to those of you outside of the continental U.S.: you can still get a copy-- just try to pledge an amount that will cover shipping, please. If you have questions you can contact me using the "send message" link on my Kickstarter page or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks so much for pledging!
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
