Writing with a Purpose

Help me create by donating today!


$405 towards $350

Who me? I'm just a little narrative freak who loves writing poetry...and now I've got a mission to help an independent press grow a little while doing what I love!

How This Works?

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.

My goal is to write a poem a day for the entire month of November, all of which will be posted here. You can keep up with my progress by visiting the site and motivate me by making a donation.

All dollars donated go directly to the Press so they can expand their reach and place more fantastic poetry at the forefront of people's lives.

Help me to help this distinguished press. :)
