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.
Greetings, friends and family! As the days begin shortening and the weather becomes cooler, I am reminded that we are only two months away from 30 Days in November!
This year, I will be writing poems about immigration through the eyes of a teacher, mother and minister. As many of you know, I was reared on poetry. Poems were life blood to the culture from whence I came.
My poetry, this year, will honor that and immigration What was it like for them? How has that changed? Why is recognizing that I am the descendant of immigrants important? These are some of the questions I hope to answer in my poetry this November.
As always, your support of my work is greatly appreciated.
