Hello, my friends and followers.
For the past week or so I have been participating in the 30/30 project with Tupelo Press. This is an intense creative endeavor, writing 30 poems in 30 days. I am doing my best to keep the creative juices flowing, but as you know, life happens – so this week I am going to write more than one piece per day, I am going to attempt to write TWO! (crazy, right?)
This amazing project is similar to NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month – April) and NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month – November), where poets write 30 poems or a full novel in 30 days.
About the 30/30 Project
Tupelo Press selects a group of poets to write a poem each day in a given month. These poems are published on the 30/30 blog. This project has two reasons for existing:
1) To support poetry and the literary arts
2) To raise funds for a small nonprofit literary press.
Tupelo Press is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) literary press – check them out here.
I write short poetry. I say as much as possible in as few words as possible. Hopefully painting a picture of a scene and describing it in such a way that the meaning is unmistakable.
My fundraising goal for this project is $350.00.
Already family and friends have donated $100 towards my goal, and I am so very grateful for that. For me this isn’t about the money, it’s about promoting what I love to do – writing. Expressing myself through words that are sometimes difficult to come by in the moment, but after reflection, can develop into a snapshot of life.
If you cannot support the project financially, that is okay! Stop by the 30/30 blog every day to read new poems.
Thank you for all the love, guidance and support.
In partnership with Tupelo Press 30/30
