Your support gives me vital inspiration as I write for thirty days this month, the month of giving... and of thanks!
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. This project is huge for me - a poem a day for 30 days is a lot of work! But this isn't just a test of my stamina; it's an opportunity for me to create my own space in the poetry world, and your donation will help keep me going.
Also, every dollar helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me to help this distinguished press. Please give today.
As a token of gratitude for your donation of $20 or greater, I will write you a poem on the topic of your choice, creating an interactive element that can only exist because of you and your generosity. I have some happy donors already with their silly poems so don't be shy - make me work! I will do my best to take the initiative but feel free to reach our to me if you are waiting for your poem a while...
Finally, thank you for your generosity, your support, and your faith in me.
