I wrote technical documents for 30 years before I picked up a pen to write my own stories. The first poem I finished was about the constellation of Cassiopeia and wheeling stars. Now there's a flat place in a meadow where I listen to my heart beat and scribble lines of poetry. A survivor of domestic abuse, I write to heal from that trauma. Every week, I lead a circle of women writers who discover their voices through words.

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!
