30 Poems in November! is a literary fundraiser in support of literacy programs at Center for New Americans.
This year, with the bold leadership of Co-Chairs Abigail Warren and Elsa Phillippi Cline, we hope to raise $50,000.
Funds raised help to support free classes and services for our community's immigrants. Some Center for New Americans teachers and immigrant students also write poems in November.
Writers commit to write one poem a day for the 30 days of November. Some poems reflect on the immigrant experience; others paint a picture or tell a story.
Friends and family provide support by donating a dollar amount for each poem ($1 x 30 poems = $30).
A Reading & Celebration at the Poetry Center at Smith College is scheduled for Tuesday, December 12. To read, writers must raise or donate at least $100.
