Dear Friends,

I am excited to be participating in Tupelo Press' 30/30 project this January. I'm hoping to write some poems and make a contribution to this great press!

I love the incredible diversity of voices at Tupelo. Some of my favorite Tupelo poets are the following, Nancy Naomi Carlson, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, and Annie Finch, to name just a few.

My poetry publications include appearances in Poetry, Cincinnati Review, Missouri Review, Ploughshares, Southern Review, and many other journals. Short fiction has appeared in Fiction International and Gargoyle. My first book Argument by Design (Washington Writers’ Publishing House) appeared in 2003. My second book of poems Woman Alone on the Mountain (Iris Press), appeared in 2014. I work at Montgomery College in Maryland.

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!
