Author Statement: For the month of July, I will be writing a poem a day as part of the Tupelo Press 30/30 Project. Like many poets before me, I am taking on the challenge of writing a poem a day for 30 days and allowing each new poem to be posted on the Tupelo 30/30 website for the world to see. I will be finishing my "Boardwalk" series and a new Old Testament inspired project, as well as discovering new thematic connections and content along the way. This project is also a fundraiser for the press, and I hope you will support my journey, but also the lifeblood of independent presses. My goal is to raise $350, all of which will go to sustaining the press and the exceptional books they publish.
About the Project: 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 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!
