Our 12th annual 30 Poems in November! was a resounding success, even in the middle of a pandemic!
30 Poems in November! is a literary fundraiser to support English language literacy for immigrants at Center for New Americans. Participants write every day. Sarah Sullivan, our Event Chair for the third year, encouraged writers with daily poetry prompts and writing workshops throughout the month. This year’s event included 99 writers who ranged from elementary school students to octogenarians.
