A Poem A Day
The Typewriter Poetry Edition
A great day for “Epiphonia”–the new printing, binding, and layout method I’ve been experimenting with has finally paid off. Read the free e-book for “Epiphonia” and buy your very own tiny handmade edition of poetry.
If you’re in Los Angeles this weekend, stop by the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at USC. It’s free! Come find me wandering around; you can purcahse “Epiphonia” in person!
Finishing up Day Nine of National Poetry Month. Have you typed your poem, yet? Get inspired by today’s fresh batch of typewriter poetry, or visit the Daily Inspiration post to read a quote from Jessica Hagedorn and a variety of other writers speaking candidly about writing poetry.

Donate to Tupelo Press
For #NationalPoetryMonth, I’m fundraising on behalf of Tupelo Press, a small literary publisher. Tupelo’s 30/30 Project is an all-year monthly round of writing a poem a day. Check out their website and read the collection of poetry we’ve volunteered to write.
Enjoying the work I’ve been steadily producing? Let me know! I also encourage you to donate in my name to Tupelo Press. 100% of proceeds go to their literary press, it’s tax-deductible, and you’d be a patron of the arts.
Looking forward to tomorrow’s fresh batch of typewriter poetry for National Poetry Month. Thanks for following the adventure!
