This August, I’ll be participating in the Tupelo 30/30 Project– a poetry marathon to raise funds for this incredible not-for-profit literary press. The poets who volunteer are challenged to write one poem each day, throughout the month. These poems are then showcased here – Tupelo 30/30 Project, to motivate poetry lovers around the world to donate to Tupelo. So stay tuned for daily updates.
In sum, my friends, starting in less than a week, I’ll be breathing, drinking, sweating and bleeding poetry every minute of every hour of every day – and I invite you to join me in this wild ride for a good cause. This is what it takes for poets world over to go on finding in Tupelo a beautiful and reliable home to share with you, darling reader, our beloved form of art, now and into the future.
The world needs poetry and poetry needs YOU! Help us spread it, far and wide, deep inside…much love to you all!
