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 Melanie Almeder, 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!
