Independent presses support poetry and poets!

Help me meet my goal, please give today.


$1,070 towards $400

I see this daily challenge as a terrifying and exhilarating jump start to a dormant poetry practice. I would be happy for you to support Tupelo Press in my name, in celebration of the wisdom, fierceness, beauty, and mystery that poetry can offer us.

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. I am grateful for your willingness to give, and to read!
