I live and write in San Antonio where I have resided for the greatest part of my life. Three current books of poetry plus several now deceased populate my oeuvre.

Presently I am writing my magnum opus to save the world: The Ancient Book of Magic Secrets. It's a hybrid collection of essays and narrative.

I like spoken word poetry and poetry for the page. I write every day and publish on Facebook. Most days anyway. I am a Facebook addict, hi my name's Rohn.

Your support will give me vital inspiration as I write for thirty days this month. I feel that Tupelo Press has published some of the finest poets being published. I have especially admired the work of poets like Maggie Smith and Ilya Kaminsky who is being honored this year with the Anisfield-Wolf Award.

For the 30/30 project, Tupelo Press provides the canvas, I bring my words, accompanied by other fine poets, writing thirty poems in thirty days, all ours to edit and submit as we wish. 30/30 poems have been taken by over 90 journals and featured in over 40 published chapbooks, all so Tupelo Press can keep publishing exquisite and diverse voices that might never be heard otherwise.

Every dollar gives me confidence to write more, and helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me to help this distinguished press. Give today!
