uphold the arts!


$235 towards $500

Follow along on my poetry marathon and give a little if you can. This project is hosted by Tupelo Press, a nonprofit literary press. Donors will receive a personalized poem!

For the month of June, I am part of a cohort sharing new work through the Tupelo Press 30/30 project. I'll be writing thirty poems in thirty days, shared daily. These are considered first drafts that I can then edit and submit however I wish. Previous 30/30 poems have been published by over 200 journals and featured in over 40 chapbooks. Tupelo Press offers this space for new work to reach new readers.

Every dollar donated uplifts the work of a small independent press. It puts book into the world, works of art that create enduring impact. Your generosity carries me and other poets along as we engage in the work of connecting hearts, minds and hands.
