Poet Bio: Poet, artist, crankypants and friend to many wild things, Carolee lives in Upstate New York, where – after a local, annual poetry competition – she has fun saying she has been the "almost" poet laureate of Smitty's Tavern. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in River Teeth, Crab Creek Review, Contrary, Naugatuck River Review, Tupelo Quarterly, Tar River Poetry and UCity Review. Carolee manages the Twitter account for the Tupelo 30/30 writing project (@TupeloPress3030), writes reviews for The American Poetry Journal, blogs at gooduniversenextdoor.com and works full-time as a writer in social media marketing.


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 other 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 90 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!
