Thank you for visiting my page. Your support gives me vital inspiration as I write for thirty days this month.

Accompanied by a cohort of fine poets all writing thirty poems in thirty days, we will generate new work that is 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 propels me to write more, and helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me help this distinguished press. Give today!
