[January Giveaway] Enter to Win an Edgar Allan Poe Print by Terrific Friends

Regular readers of this blog know how much I love not only dead writers, but art. I’ve wiled away many a winter’s day sipping Earl Grey tea and reading old books, when I should be writing, editing, or otherwise engaged in some more “useful” pursuit. Whether deep in work or the pages of a book, though, I’m fortunate to always be surrounded by interesting visuals: photos, prints, paintings, etc.

Many of these images are of books or dead writers, because, well, an obsession is an obsession. One of the huge perks of running A Small Press Life is being able to share some of these finds with you, my dear readers and blogging friends.

Terrific Friends by Diana Shafer is one of my favourite Etsy shops, and for good reason. Diana’s writerly portraits are fresh, intelligent, and fun. Her work has featured in several of the most popular Shopping for the Bookworm posts.

I’m excited to announce that A Small Press Life has partnered with Diana Shafer and Terrific Friends to give away a copy of one of her awesome pieces!

A lucky reader will win their very own Edgar Allan Poe print. At 8″x10″ it’s an easy-to-frame standard (American) size.

This could be yours:
