Todd Ferguson grew up in Texas. He has lived in Brussels, Washington DC, and Chicago and currently lives in Evanston, Illinois, where he teaches high school English and philosophy. He holds his BA in English from Trinity University and his PhD in Philosophy from Purdue University. Inspired by the works of Ludwig Wittgenstein, Virginia Woolf, Georgia O’Keeffe, David Foster Wallace, Carolyn Forche, and Maggie Nelson, he is interested in the spaces between the known and unknown, the sayable and unsayable, the self and the world. When he is not teaching, he spends as much time as possible in the magical landscapes of Far West Texas and Northern New Mexico. Todd is co-editor of Restoring Hope: Decent Care in the Midst of HIV/AIDS (Palgrave Macmillan, 2008). Speaking Silence, Silence Speaking, his debut collection of poetry, is scheduled to be published by Mercury HeartLink (Silver City, NM) this fall.

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!
