30/30 Project Tupelo Press July 2013

I am thrilled to be a member of the poets picked for the Tupelo Press 30/30 Project this July. In just five days (or four, not including today) I will post a poem a day here.

A little about the press I am helping to support:

“Tupelo Press, which released its first five books in fall 2001, is an independent, literary press devoted to discovering and publishing works of poetry and literary fiction by emerging and established writers. Tupelo Press is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit company.”

In order to donate, please visit this page.

If you support this endeavor, there are goodies to be shared:

Donate $1 to $9.99 and I will send you a postcard signed by yours truly with a poem and some of my original artwork. Here’s an example:


Donate $10 to $98.99 and I will supply you with three post cards including original artwork by yours truly.

Buy a subscription from Tupelo Press for $99 that entitles you to nine books of poetry, and I will mail three poetry postcards along with an original piece of artwork on paper to the first ten people who do so. (Note: After the first ten people who buy a subscription to Tupelo Press there will be no more artwork on paper to give away.)

Lastly, the first three people or groups to donate $250 or more will receive one of these three paintings (acrylic on canvas) by me along with three poetry postcards each:


Please visit Tupelo Press and look for my work at the 30/30 Project beginning July 1. And thank you for your support in this endeavor. Remember: Poetry allows us to share moments of self-discovery and it provides the lens by which we see ourselves more fully. Read poetry. Support small presses. More to follow…
