I was one of three winners of the Rattle Chapbook Contest. In March of 2020, my chapbook of poetry called Falling off the Empire State Building will be mailed out to 7,000 subscribers of Rattle for free. Pretty exciting.

On March 1, 2020, around 7,000 people are going to be wondering who the heck this Jimmy Pappas fellow is and what the heck he is doing in their mailbox.

If you have a subscription to the poetry journal Rattle, you will be receiving a free copy of my prize-winning chapbook Falling off the Empire State Building with your March issue. If you do NOT have a subscription, the editors will help me cover the cost of postage to send out copies to reviewers.

So if you would like a print copy of my chapbook mailed to you in March of this year, please contact me through the Goodreads mailing system. I would need a postal mailing address. I think it would have to be in the United States. I still have not asked if they would cover overseas mailings. I will check on that.

Rattle will also mail out chapbooks to international addresses. They always go the extra mile for their poets. So if you would like to receive the chapbook in the mail in March of this year, just send me a note through Goodreads with your mailing address, both foreign and domestic. Good deal. Rattle covers the costs of mailing. No money needed from the recipient. There will be over 7,000 copies mailed out.
