I'm participating in a poetry fundraising challenge!

help me meet my goal & support tupelo press!


$570 towards $1,000


the 30/30 project is a month-long challenge in which volunteer poets write and submit 30 poems in 30 days in an effort to raise money for tupelo press - a non-profit publisher focused on creating a space for poets to share their work with the world.

every day, one of my poems will be posted on the the tupelo press website, and I will be joining an amazing community of fellow writers who have had work accepted in over 90 different journals, and in over 40 published chapbooks

this challenge will give me the opportunity to give back to the writing community and to share my work with a wide audience! your support in this endeavor of mine means the world, and anything you are able to donate will help tupelo press continue to elevate poetry and get it out into the world!

click here to check out my poems on the july 30/30 blog!

learn more about tupelo press on their website:


  • for donations of $15 or more, you will have the option of receiving a downloadable digital art print of one of my poems.
  • the first 10 donors to donate $75 or more will get an uncarved, 16oz OMshaka handmade coffee mug similar, but not identical, to the one below! that's just contributing $2.50/poem for 30 poems!

spreading the world about this project is incredibly helpful! you can support my 30/30 challenge without donating by liking and sharing my posts about the challenge on social, and even by sending me fun writing prompts!
