We’re Giving Away Barbies

One day, Marcus Goodyear was sitting at Communion; his daughter was playing with Barbies while the bread passed. That moment turned into the marvelous poem “Barbies at Communion.”

Did Marcus ever think this simple moment would eventually find its way to a book cover, indeed a whole book of terrific poetry? Yet, here we are.

At Tweetspeak, we’re so pleased that the poetry of many ordinary moments— turned clever, beautiful and often philosophical— are now available in print. So pleased, in fact, that we’re going to give away a signed copy of Marcus’s debut poetry book Barbies at Communion.

We’re also asking you to write about the Barbies in your life and link to our Giveaway post. Stories, memories, weird pictures, fun poems… anything goes. Just drop your link here, and we’ll link back to you. You might even get featured at Tweetspeak or HighCallingBlogs. Let the fun begin!

To enter the giveaway, comment on this post anytime between now and 11 pm EST on Thursday, June 3.

    One of the first books of poetry I ever bought was also on Barbies– Denise Duhame’s Kinky. Looking forward to checking out Barbies at Communion too.
