My poems can make a difference!

Help me support a wonderful independent press.


$550 towards $350

For over twenty years, Tupelo Press has been producing beautiful books by emerging and established poets and writers. This September, I am participating in Tupelo's 30/30 Project, with the goal of writing a poem a day for the month and raising funds to support the press.

During the month I'm hoping to generate poems based on recent travels in Poland and England as well as use this opportunity to observe and write from everyday situations and inspirations. My poetry has appeared in Through Lines Magazine, About Place Journal, Copperfield Review, and Reed, among other publications, and I'm author of the chapbook Field of Everlasting. As a mom, educator, and writer, I am committed to the empowerment that comes from literacy, and volunteer as a reading tutor for children and adults. Currently I live in southern California with my husband and our three-legged rescue dog.

For this project, 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.

Your support gives me vital inspiration as I write for thirty days this month. Daily poems from the 30/30 group are posted on the Tupelo Press website: (Poems appear in alphabetical order by author.) Check it out--and feel free to return to the page over the course of the month to read new poems.

Every dollar gives me confidence to write more, and helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me support this distinguished press. Give today!

With appreciation and warm wishes,
