30 Poems in November! is a literary fundraiser in support of literacy programs at Center for New Americans. This is our 10th year of writing and raising!
This year, we are so grateful to Sarah Sullivan, our energetic and creative Event Chair, who presided over a remarkably successful event.
This year, with support from 84 writers and over 1,000 donors, we raised over $58,000. Those funds help to support free classes and services for our community's immigrants. Some Center for New Americans teachers and immigrant students will write poems.
Here's how it works: 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).
It is still possible to contribute to one of our talented writers.
