Your support gives me vital inspiration as I write for thirty days in May.
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 200 journals and featured in over 40 published chapbooks, all so Tupelo Press can keep publishing 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!
For this month, I plan to focus primarily on writing poems about and inspired by the mid-century American poet John Berryman. I hope you'll join me as I learn more about him and try to find ways to make his story as compelling to others as it has been to me.
You can follow along and read the poems each day here.
