Poetry matters.

Thank you for joining me on my January journey!


$390 towards $750

What better way to start the year than with a 30-day sprint of creativity? If you're here, I hope it means you're reading along, and maybe even finding some inspiration to kick off your own 2023. I also hope it means you're considering supporting my efforts--and all the amazing work at Tupelo Press--by becoming a patron of this month's 30/30 project. Even the smallest bit makes a difference. Your dollars help bring beautiful books into the world...and the world needs all the beauty it can get!
