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.
It’s that time again--I’m asking you to support me in a labor of love and community engagement. The deal is, I promise to write a poem a day for the month of November—not necessarily the best poems I’ll ever write, but I always manage a few keepers. In exchange, you pledge your support to the Center for New Americans, an organization that does much-needed work in our community, supporting immigrants and new Americans. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how important this is right now.
So let’s do this! Soon, I’ll be waking up early and staying up late, maybe cursing some, but doing my best to honor this organization, the folks it serves, and you, dear friends. I honor you, and your generous, loving support for me and this endeavor. Thank you.
