30 Poems in November: A Body of Work

Hey Friends, I signed up for the 30 Poems in November project that raises funds for the Center for New Americans, an excellent organization that welcomes and serves new immigrants and refugees in western MA.  Now, more than ever, we need to support these folks in our communities.

In honor of the conversation that’s been generated this election season around immigration, women, bodies and power, I pledge to write a poem a day for 30 days that somehow relates to the body. Here’s the link to my fundraising page–any amount it appreciated!

Body image, body power, body parts, you name it! In fact, if you make a donation, feel free to suggest a body part or body topic that I should try to address. (I reserve the right to ignore your request if I find it inappropriate to my theme. Or if I just don’t like it.)

This is probably a crazy idea that will have me banging my head on the desk, but it’s a great cause, and hey, what else do I have to do other than work full-time, raise my kids and try to be a writer!

I’m late getting started with this, so hopefully some of you who haven’t donated yet will support this excellent organization through my 30 days project. Thanks in advance for your generosity!
