Tupelo Press Poetry Project

In 2007, the Tupelo Press Poetry Project was established to provide poets and creative writing teachers with engaging, challenging prompts or provocations for writing new poems. Poets were invited  to propose a set of prompts or provocations for writers. Our guest editor’s selections were then featured in an online gallery.

Check out our anthology of erotic poetry, Myrrh, Mothwing, Smoke, the culmination of the Winter 2012 Poetry Project. Congratulations to our 30 contributing poets and a special thank you to all who submitted entries to the contest!
