Born in Shanghai, China, Suki Sun is a poet based in Saint Paul, Minnesota. She started to write poems in English, her second language during the Covid pandemic. She is interested in the process by which the meaning, sound, and shape of Chinese words migrate into the English poetry landscape through the cross-cultural lens, from involuntary misunderstanding to intentional mix-understanding with wonder, fluidity, and playfulness.

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!
