Marion Deal moves from Nepali monasteries to Jim Morrison’s grave to the University of Rochester in pursuit of psycholinguistics, poetics, and Buddhist scholarship. Two chapbooks of theirs are forthcoming: Cool Talks, Dead I Guess (Bone & Ink Press, 2019) and The Messiah’s Customary Diner Booth (Unsolicited Press, 2021). Their poetry and essays have appeared or are forthcoming in journals such as The Rumpus, Lunch Ticket, The Doctor T.J. Eckleburg Review, The Seventh Quarry (UK), Chaleur Magazine, and Yes Poetry, among others, and have been nationally recognized by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers and the National YoungArts Foundation. Their translation work was longlisted for the Young Poets Network 2019 translation challenge. They have performed their work in French, Italian, and English at venues from a Shandong Province mountain range to the Baryshnikov Arts Center, and are a proud veteran poetry whore of Paris’ Le Bordel de la Poésie.

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!
