30/30 Project

I’m participating in Tupelo Press’s 30/30 Project this April, in support of their fine work  and in celebration of National Poetry Month. You can read poems by me and my cohort online here.

Please contribute to this worthy cause: keeping poetry alive in American arts and letters. You can also support my project by subscribing to Tupelo Press’s annual publications and letting them know that you are one of my well-wishers. Visit their website for details. If you’d like a commissioned poem, send me a note along with your donation.

My job is to write one poem each day for the whole month. In this time of fear and uncertainty, the work of offering raw, written nourishment to readers every day will be intense. I don’t know how I’ll make it through without your encouragement.

A note from Kirsten Miles, the director of 30/30 — “This project gives you the opportunity to support the humanities – through a small, independent press that sorely needs support right now as almost all income streams to literary presses are gone. Literature lasts through the ages, it’s how humans stay connected and you can tell everyone you know that a donation to Tupelo Press helps give diverse voices a way to reach the world, through their kindness and generosity.”
