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, its tax-deductible, and you’d be a patron of the arts.

See you tomorrow for more National Poetry Month, the typewriter poetry edition!
