As many of you know, I have been writing poetry since I was a kid. Many of you have been supporting me since way back then! I've never doubted that poetry could make a difference in the world. I know that this is a feeling that many of us share. Small presses are a bastion of publication for otherwise unheard voices like mine.
One of these presses, Tupelo Press, has given me the opportunity to write daily for a month and to publish each of these poems on their website. Many of these will be republished in journals and books! I'm Super-Psyched!
My hope is that you will join me on this journey. Your support through all of these years has been incredible and I count myself almost indecently lucky, with my support network of amazing family and friends, mentors and readers.
During this challenge, it is my hope that you will continue your support of me and small presses.
Your support and love always give me vital inspiration as I write. This October, they could also help fund a press that is doing great work.
Tupelo Press provides the canvas, I bring my words, accompanied by other fine poets, writing thirty poems in thirty days. 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 helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me to help this distinguished press. Thanks, guys.
