Linda Michel-Cassidy spent a decade in voluntary exile in rural northern New Mexico, and currently lives on a working ship-turned-houseboat in Northern California. Her writing has appeared in Tahoma Review, Harpur Palate, Catamaran, Eleven Eleven, and The SanFrancisco Public Library's Poem-a-Day Project, among others. She is a contributing editor at Entropy Magazine, writes criticism for several journals, and conducts the Eight Books That Made Me podcast for the Mill Valley, CA library. In addition, she teaches experimental writing and is an installation artist. She has an MFA from the Bennington Writing Seminars, and another from the California College of the Arts for visual arts.

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 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!
