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, 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 community support for immigrants.
Hello dear friends!
I'm moved by the thought that my poetry, which so often has touched people, could actually be a fundraiser for tangible activism. I invite you to join me in spirit and substance this month as I set aside time each day to sit in my study and listen for "the still small voice." This seems to me yet another way to help bring light to the profound abyss in which we find ourselves, reaching out to New Americans with the promise of hope, new life, dreams of what the future can bring.
