Poems can make a difference!

Help me support an independent press, and meet an audacious writing goal


$1,130 towards $800

Your support gives me vital inspiration as I write for thirty days in the month of June.

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. Make a pledge to give $1-$10/day and it will keep me motivated!

Everyone who donates will receive a weekly email telling the story behind the writing - where the inspiration comes from, whether the words dropped out of the sky or I had to dig deep. At the end of the month, you'll receive a signed and printed poem and photo of mine that's yours to keep. Also check out my blog on Volcano Goddess. In June, please sign up in to hear Richard Blanco, Tess Taylor and Rick Barot reading on our website: The Poets Corner, a community based poetry and prose platform.

I've never written 30 poems in 30 days before--it's a bit daunting, but I won't let you down!
