Tupelo Press 30/30 Project: Day #15

My fifteenth poem for 30/30, “Measure” is live. For more information about Tupelo Press, 30/30 & donations and incentives, please see my previous post or visit the project blog.

I’m halfway through 30/30 and so far it has been a tremendous experience. I’m exhausted but in a good way. If you’re waiting on a poem, know that I’m going in order of request, so fear not. I have not forgotten you. There’s still plenty of time.

Also, thank you to all the generous folks who have sponsored me so far. You’re all rock stars.

Tupelo Press 30/30 Project: Day #12

My twelfth  poem for 30/30, “Reflection” is live. For more information about Tupelo Press, 30/30 & donations and incentives, please see my previous post or visit the project blog.

I wrote this poem while in Minneapolis for AWP. I was able to sit outside at a picnic table and free write for about an hour. There was sunshine and a breeze. It was glorious.

My eleventh poem for 30/30, “Wedgwood” is live. For more information about Tupelo Press, 30/30 & donations and incentives, please see my previous post or visit the project blog.

Today is my last day in Minneapolis for AWP and it has been lovely. I’ve met so many wonderful writers, attended many inspiring readings/panels and connected with new and old friends. I even got to explore the city a bit and check out the Walker Art Center, which was amazing.

Tattoosday: National Poetry Month Edition

About a month ago I learned about Bill Cohen’s Tattoosday Blog and was thrilled to hear that he does a special feature for tattooed poets during the month of April to celebrate National Poetry Month. I got my first tattoo last year (around this time), so I thought I’d see if I could participate in this cool project.

Today I’m up on the blog, so check it out and make sure to keep checking back throughout the month for more interesting ink.

Also, many thanks to Bill for including me in his project!
