April is National Poetry Month!
It’s been a while since I last attempted a poetry challenge.
This year, I’ll be writing a poem a day. Each piece will be part of a broader series I am currently working on, called suck myself out the heart i give it back.
But first: a tiny poetry book
To kick off #NPM16, I’d like to introduce Epiphonia:
Epiphonia is a tiny miniature book I handmade. It’s made up of a single poem, written by yours truly. It’s told in the form of an Official Bureaucratic Love Letter sent directly to YOU from the Governing Bodies of the Universe 👽
Donations for Tupelo Press
For this year’s #NPM16, I’ll be writing an original poem a day on behalf of Tupelo Press. Myself and eight other poets will be creating poetry each day for Tupelo’s fundraising marathon, also known as the 30/30 Project.
As an independent literary press, Tupelo is in need of your donations. Please consider donating as a show of admiration and support for poetry, writing, and art. I’m merely volunteering to help bring awareness to a great literary press and staff; 100% of the funds go directly to Tupelo Press.
Are you ready to write a Poem A Day?
Keep in touch!
Since I got back to Los Angeles from the forests of Sweden, I’ve been maniacally focused on building a body of art through poetry, handmade books, and paintings. You could say I had one of those famous Turning Points they keep talking about, or maybe more accurately a Big Life Epiphany. I’m just happy to be working on projects, again. I feel much lighter, being able to put #FreePoetry to its much deserved rest.
There’s a lot to do and a lot more to come. Life has been busy but full of this commitment to artistic process. Here’s to you being a part of it!
