Emily Pister is a young entrepreneur from Calgary, Alberta. When she is not working at her new plant-based café, a good portion of her time is spent pouring herself into different forms of writing and performing. Her first publication was through a poetry competition with Polar Expressions Publishing in 2018, which led to her winning poem being published in a compilation book of Canadian writers titled "Lean In". For the past couple of years, she has been creating her own individual poetry manuscript, with the goal of finding the right agent to assist with publishing. She is also a songwriter with a few completed solo and collaborative tracks, which can be found on Spotify, SoundCloud and Youtube under the artist name "Emanate". Writing is her means of understanding and expanding on all of the pain and pleasure that life has to offer.

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 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 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!
