Brett Gastineau is a graduate of the MFA program at the University of Minnesota. He is a former preschool instructor at The Goddard School in Carmel, IN and at the Head Start program in Greencastle, IN, as well as, a former teacher’s assistant at IPS #91 Rousseau McClellan in Indianapolis, IN. He currently lives with his family in the Garfield Park neighborhood of Indianapolis and enjoys being a stay at home dad. He writes poems daily about his former varied life that has carried him from Indiana to Georgia to California to Minnesota and back again, through over forty odd jobs, countless fumbles of the heart, and a fascination with guitars and bus terminals.

Your support gives me vital inspiration as I write for thirty days this month.

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!
