I am dedicating the poems I write this month to all those who lost their homes in Oregon wildfires. But I'm not fixed on the directions the poems may go. Leaves are beginning to turn on the black locust tree next door. Soon the live branches will meld with the dead. Images begin to emerge. Is the hat I wear the strangeness of our times? We'll see what happens. I only know, your support will give me inspiration as I write a poem a day this month.

Tupelo Press provides the canvas, I bring my words, accompanied by other fine poets, writing thirty poems in thirty days (or thirty one), 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!
