Poetry for life.

Help me meet my goal, please give today.

$93 towards $350

I had a rough start this month, and so did the 30/30 website. I'm back in the saddle and say I can still write 30 poems in 30 days. An enthusiastic audience helps me accomplish that goal.

In addition to my own semi-plans, I will write . . .
-- a poem of 8-10 lines on a topic of your choice, for a $10 donation

-- a sonnet for a $15 donation

-- a villanelle for a $20 donation

-- an imitation of a canonical English poet for a $25 donation

-- a sestina for a $30 donation

So send in the requests!

It may take me up to 3 days to complete a request, depending on what it is. (Sestinas take me the longest.)

This project supports wonderful indie Tupelo Press. Tupelo publishes poetry, translations, and chapbooks. It runs workshops and retreats, which I have found both inspirational and practical.

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.
