I donated in support of this campaign.
You may know me as a friend, a sometime musician, or as a teacher, or someone you worked with at that human relations organization many years ago, or maybe as that guy who keeps trying to tell a funny joke. Well, I'm also a writer and have been writing poetry for over 30 years. I consider poetry as an important part of who I am and also a form to express how I see the world.
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!
