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.

This December, I'll be writing alongside five friends from the Poetry Witch Community (PWC), as well as some new poets I'm excited to get to know better. PWC is an online community that brings together poets and poetry lovers with feminists and women-centered spiritual seekers and practitioners from around the world to practice poetry, scansion, and magic, build circles of connection and empowerment, and explore the rhythmic languages of poetry.

Every dollar gives me the confidence to write more and helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me to help this distinguished press. Please, if you are able, give today!

In addition to that warm feeling you'll get from donating, I've also come up with a few perks for folks who donate. If I have your email address, each Monday, I will send a packet containing one of my award-winning flash fiction stories and one or more poems.
