On Facebook, someone started a chapbook swap page, and so far I’ve sent and received seven books. Seven poets whose work I can really get to know, and seven new readers of my chapbook and work. I think the idea of swapping poetry books, especially chapbooks, is a wonderful way to broaden your reading and acquaintance in the world of working poets. I have at time swapped full-length books too, though those cost more to exchange. But more poets should read more poets, and this is a way to get it to happen.
Anyone out there want to swap chapbooks? Email me.
