He earned his Ph.D. in English and Renaissance Studies at Yale University, is a graduate of Yale Divinity School, and has received fellowships to study in Israel and Germany.

Books matter! Words have the power to change lives, but in our digital age physical books are under threat. Tupelo Press is making a difference, however. This incredible, nonprofit publisher is committed to bringing us the finest poets, in books of exquisite craftsmanship. Tupelo publishes amazing writers like Nomi Stone and Ilya Kaminsky, who’s being honored this year with the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award.

I’m now collaborating with Tupelo Press for the 30/30 Project. Together with other poets and creators, I will be writing thirty poems in thirty days, all to be published as part of this distinctive project.

30/30 poems have been taken by over 90 journals and featured in over 40 published chapbooks, all so Tupelo Press can keep publishing distinct and diverse voices that might never be heard otherwise.

Every dollar helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me help this distinguished press. Give today!
