I'm always uncomfortable with asking for money, but this project will support a press I am getting to know, and they have taught me a great deal, already: I recently took a workshop with them to learn how to put together my second collection of poems, What the Stones Borrowed. I plan to send this manuscript out to publishers, beginning in the fall.
I'm excited this fundraiser circles around my own writing: it will really get me rolling, knowing I have so many willing readers to see what I create -- 30 poems in 30 days.
Tupelo Press provides the canvas: I bring my words, accompanied by a cohort of 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!
