Support Typewriter Poetry

Like what Typewriter Poetry is doing? There are quite a few creative and interesting ways to support us, like purchasing an Amazon book through our Collaborative Wishlist!

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.

Thanks for joining the ride. Next month, we’ll continue to curate featured typewriter poetry, but at a much slower (weekly) rate. See you next year for the typewriter poetry edition of National Poetry Month 2017!
