Your support means the world to me as I write for thirty days this month.

Tupelo Press provides the venue, I bring my words, thoughts, memories, music, and weird ideas. Accompanied by other fine poets, we have set out to write 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 heartens me and keeps me writing, and helps Tupelo Press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me to help this distinguished press. Small amounts add up, just as each word is necessary to make the poem. Give today!

Incentives: If you donate $20-35, I will write you a limerick, either on the subject of your choice, or containing a word of your choice. It'll be a good one, too.
