Day Twenty-four, Tupelo Press 30/30 Project


Katharsis” is among the Day Twenty-four offerings of the Tupelo Press 30/30 Project (9 poets have agreed to write 30 poems apiece in 30 days, to raise funds for Tupelo Press, a non-profit literary publisher). Many thanks to Plain Jane who sponsored and provided the title.


The questions, as always: which rocks to ignore, who will

Even though no more title sponsorships remain, you can still contribute to Tupelo Press! Every bit helps (even a dollar or two), and I’ve some other sponsorship opportunities, with corresponding incentives, listed here.

If you’re so inclined, please visit the 30/30 blog at: Donate to Tupelo. Scroll down to “Is this donation in honor of a 30/30 poet?” and select my name, “Robert Okaji,” from the pull down so that Tupelo knows to credit the donation to me. And please let me know so that I may send a thank you and incentive gift your way.

Tomorrow’s poem is titled “A Cheese Omelet at Midnight,” thanks to the kindness and generosity of Pleasant Street.

Thank you for your support! Only 6 poems to go!

  1. Enjoying your 30/30. I’ve done one with photos, and have often thought I should try a poetry one. Great way to stimulate the creative flow. Only six to go–and then you’ll find it hard to stop.
