Patty Joslyn moved to Cape Cod, Massachusetts from Mendocino County, California, in 2018. She is fascinated with both death and birth as passages into new realms. As a writer she has been published in El Calendario de Todos Santos, poetsonline.org, VOYA, (Voices of Youth Advocates) Tupelo Press-30/30 Project-March 2015, and several anthologies. She has been a guest presenter at many events. Patty’s book ru mi nate was born in 2017 and she has eight self-published chapbooks. She and her husband share four wonderful grown children. Patty has never fully recovered from empty nest syndrome or the fact she can no longer do a cartwheel.

Tupelo Press provides the canvas, I bring my words, accompanied by other fine poets, writing thirty poems in thirty days, 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 ($) raised helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Give, if you can. Take the words as symbols of connection. Share. We need this, especially, during these most unsettling time.

Tupelo Press says it well: "Language, imagination, distinctiveness, & craft."

I'll add; diversity, freedom, courage and ... my thanks. xo
