30 Poems in November! is a fall tradition, a literary fundraiser in support of immigrant literacy.

Writers -- amateur, published, and everyone in between -- commit to write one poem every day in November.

Friends and family members pledge a dollar amount per poem to support their effort.

The result:

* Money for English classes, computer sessions, tutoring for immigrants. Immigrants with English literacy can help children in school, apply for jobs, read the newspaper.

* Lots of new poems - some funny, some sad, some whimsical, many about the immigrant experience.

30 Poems in November! is the literary equivalent of a charity road race. Why should runners have all the fun!

    What a wonderful start to November! Your gifts are coming in with touching messages of support for you and empathy for immigrants. Some of you would like to share poems or excerpts from poems. We have created a closed FB group for you to post to if you wish: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1638684186348912/ Carry on! With gratitude, Laurie, on behalf of Center for New Americans
