30 Poems to Support Immigrants

30 Poems in November! is a literary fundraiser for Center for New Americans. Center for New Americans welcomes and serves immigrants in Western Massachusetts with free English classes and a range of support services. For more information, please visit: http://www.cnam.org This year, they aim to raise $50,000. I'll do my part by writing one poem each day in November. You can do your part by donating to support this effort. Suggested contribution is $1 per poem ($30 total), but any amount is welcome. Every dollar you contribute translates to direct community support for immigrants -- our new neighbors, our new Americans.

30 Poems in November! is one of my favorite "do good" projects. I've supported several poets over the past few years, but this year will be my first time as a writer-contributor. The timing, this year, feels significant. I have been looking for a way to re-ignite my poetry practice -- and there's nothing like a deadline to keep me honest. But in addition I recently obtained a TESOL teaching certificate so as to work in the immigrant community. I am a deep explorer of my own immigrant history. And then, of course, the times we are living in... Writing a poem never felt more useful. I hope you will join me as I explore thresholds -- where and when we cross, and how we manage this business of departing and arriving.
