Win Rumi's Secret: The Life of the Sufi Poet of Love Three randomly selected winners will receive signed copies of this beautiful book! Enter now At Auburn Seminary.
Ecstatic love poems of Rumi, a Persian poet and Sufi mystic born over eight centuries ago, are beloved by millions of readers. He has been compared to Shakespeare for his outpouring of creativity and to Saint Francis of Assisi for his spiritual wisdom.
The biography traces Rumi’s journey as a Muslim preacher and refugee who finds a new spiritual home with the disruptive appearance of Shams of Tabriz, who taught him to whirl and transformed him into a poet and mystic.
Their vital connection as teacher and pupil, friend and beloved, is one of the world’s greatest spiritual love stories.
Ambitious, bold, and beautifully written, Rumi’s Secret sets Rumi in context, explains his life long devotion to Islam and Muslim spirituality, and reveals the unfolding of Rumi’s devotion to a "religion of love," remarkable in his own time and made even more relevant for the twenty-first century by this compelling account.
The author is Brad Gooch whose other books include the biography of the Catholic writer Flannery O’Connor, Flannery: A Life of Flannery O’Connor and City Poet: The Life and Times of Frank O’Hara.

I am looking for guest blog opportunities and a position as poet-in-residence. My current project is writing dictionary poems using words in different languages for the English word "peace." You can read some of my poems on Poemhunter .
As poet-in-residence I would write poems on different words in different languages and broadcast them throughout the social media blogosphere. Each poem would link back to your site where the word or language appeared.
I would expect some sort of stipend and a six month to one year placement. Please contact me for details if your organization is interested in having a poet-in-residence to help get your message out. Nervewhisperer@gmial.com
