"“Poetry is ordinary language raised to the Nth power"
Now more than ever it's clear that in times of tribulation we turn to art. Right now the world is crazy and full of need in ways nearly all of us have never experienced. Fundraising for a poetry press might feel incongruous to this great need, but I don't see it that way. Without my daily dose of poetry, music, and drawing, I think I'd lose my mind.
If you are able, please donate to keep this great independent press running through the highs and lows of the year(s) to come.
Supporters will receive my gratitude and a "behind the scenes" poetry newsletter each week in April. Subscriptions count towards my fundraising goal and contain multiple books mailed through the course of a year, written by some of the best poets writing today.
Thanks in advance. My best to you and yours during these strange times.
