Annie Goold is from a small farm in rural Illinois. She graduated in 2017 from Cornell University with an MFA in poetry. She lives and writes in Urbana, Illinois.
Poetry, for me, is a life-saving force, something that galvanizes the body upon entry, an intimacy that teaches movement and location. I write to listen and make way for that energy.
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 200 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 and to make possible a bit of momentum.
