We began writing poems Oct. 1 and will write one a day through Oct. 30. Our line-up is: Jen Stewart Fueston, Karen Greenbaum-Maya, Chad W. Lutz, Rebecca Macijeski, Shea Montgomery, Francesca Moroney, Ally Schwam, and Aline Soules. That’s 8 poems you can read every day at this link: https://www.tupelopress.org/the-3030-project/
So far, so good–for me, at least. I’m writing, although I forgot to send my poem yesterday, and will keep right on going. It’s writing practice with structure. And how much some of us (me?) need structure.
Our goal is to write, of course, but we also want to help Tupelo Press, which has been so good to us all. It’s founder, Jeffrey Levine, is tireless in his efforts to promote poetry. Actually, I expect he gets pretty tired some days because it’s a ton of work, but he never gives up and his press supports the work of women, minorities, and those whom society considers “other” in some way. He helps their voices to be heard. To support these writers and the press, please donate. Even $1 will help.
