Now more than ever, we need to support writers and observers of the human experience and presses that publish their work!


$0 towards $500

During April-National Poetry Month,- I and a contingent of brave poets, will attempt to write a poem a day- no small feat! Your monetary gift of ANY amount will not only inspire me to put pen to paper each day but allows Tupelo Press to keep publishing exquisite and diverse voices that might never be heard otherwise.

In September 2020, I first participated in the Tupelo Press 30/30 Project and am thrilled that those poems are now a chapbook! Of Ash & Fire is now available for preorder-

This demonstrates just how important and vital your support is. It inspires poets like myself to craft poems that inspire, challenge, humor, and honor readers and publications like Tupelo Press to continue to publish their work!

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!
