If you're not familiar with Sage, she's the author of Writing the Life Poetic, which is one of the few books I keep on my desk at all times (right up there with my Webster's Dictionary and 2011 Poet's Market). Sage's most recent book, The Productive Writer, was released in December. So her guest post tomorrow will tie together poetry and productivity.

Plus, she'll be checking in and answering questions throughout the day (on her actual guest post tomorrow, so please post your questions over there). Whoever asks questions and participates in the discussion tomorrow will be entered into a raffle for a free, signed copy of The Productive Writer (shipped directly from Sage). The winner of the raffle will be announced on this blog.

I'm pretty excited to welcome Sage as our first ever guest blogger! If all goes well, maybe we'll do similar guest posts in the future!
