SUPER SPECIAL on Poet's Haven Chapbooks!

So, if you're one of the many folks who read The Poet's Haven's online galleries but haven't yet purchased any of our Author Series chapbooks, do I have an offer for you!  Right now, and only for a limited time, you can get all 8 books published by The Poet's Haven for just $32 with FREE SHIPPING.  That's 20% off the cover price, plus FREE SHIPPING.  Plus, the next FOUR people to take advantage of this awesome offer will get a FREE BONUS ITEM!  Don't miss out!

Why are we doing this?  We need to raise some cash, fast, to cover some upcoming publishing projects and prepare for more big poetry events, working to expand modern poetry's audience.  Plus, Vertigo's got a bunch of (poetry related) car and dental bills that need paid ASAP, so his own finances are tied up at the moment.  :-)

The Poet's Haven presents "Is Anybody Listening?" by Vladimir Swirynsky

Vladimir Swirynsky led a normal life for 45 years. On his first visit to Mardi Gras, he was swept away by the music, the sights and energy of a million people, helping inspire him to become a writer. Poetry has played an important part in him overcoming his inhibitions. He has performed in most of the major cities and he has devoted a good portion of his time to reading for the elderly and at veteran homes. He hopes to save enough money so he can get his car fixed, get plates, and after 50 years finally leave Ohio and settle out west. His new home will be where his car decides to break down, hopefully Arizona.

The Poet's Haven presents "Metamorphosis: Selections" by Jacob Oet

Jacob Oet's writing and images appear in Cream City Review, Illuminations, Yemassee, Yalobusha Review, and Radioactive Moat, among others. His awards include the 2011 Younkin-Rivera Poetry Prize and the 2011 Ohioana Robert Fox Award. Jacob is the author of two poetry chapbooks: Metamorphosis (Kattywompus Press) and Peeling the Apple (NightBallet Press, forthcoming in Fall 2012). A student by choice, Jacob is never sure which language he speaks. You may spot him in a park, forest, or beach, with planted feet, arms stretched up and shaking in a breeze. But don’t let him see you; he likes to sing to strangers. He takes photos of snow, and hates winter.
