30 POEMS TO SUPPORT NEW AMERICANS (and provide a type of support for us older Americans, too)!!

Hello! Last year was the first year I attempted to write 30 poems in November for this wonderful fundraiser for Center for New Americans. With your help, we raised far more than I had hoped to. Given the discouraging political changes in our environment, I am even more motivated this year to raise money to support the Center for New Americans, which 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, we aim to raise $50,000. Writers do their part by writing one poem each day in November. Friends and family do their part by donating to support this effort. Powerful new poems and financial contributions translate to direct community support for immigrants -- our new neighbors, our new Americans.

a weekend poet of pyramid, standing by the roadside, cheering for the good guys, holding out for first prize, words that get the job done, look it's still a sandbox, searching for another one, silence is the great cloak, you knows how it goes?

Go, go, go, S.S. Your work has a life of its own. Don’t worry about it so much. Just keep getting it out of the house so we can read it. Thanks for doing this two years in a row. It’s hard work!

It's not a competition but I totally want to win!

Additionally writing daily and having your support via emails, in person, and through your contributions, was part of what helped me and many others get through last November. Let's do it again! Please consider donating a dollar a day ($30 for the month), or more or less. I plan to email out my poem daily to those who are interested in reading them. It's not a competition, but let's raise the most money of all the poets donating their talents and time! And if someone else raises more money, that's way cool, too. Have a safe and generous autumn.
