"Yay you. Yay poetry. How about a poem about CAKE!"
"Sandra -- happy to support you and creative endeavors like this. It's exactly what the world needs right now. "
If you know me, you know how much I love poetry. Poetry is a way to say things you can't through other means. Poetry is response and action, emotion and mind. Poetry Matters!
I am going to write a poem a day for thirty days in July to support this poetry passion.
Will you help me? You contribution to Tupelo Press helps poetry and independent publishing, voices that you may not hear in other venues. And what we need more of is gorgeous poems by diverse voices.
Any amount you give helps me to achieve my goal of raising $400.
If you donate $15, I will write a poem for you using any prompt you throw my way.
