per poetry submission and contest fees
These days, it's virtually impossible to become a professional poet without supplementary financial support. Even poets who have higher education in the field rarely have the opportunity to write poetry for a living. Many teach literature or writing, whilst others compromise their careers by working outside of academia. I am one of the latter.

I am an American poet of color who immigrated to England in 2012. I work for local government within a small team that aims to disrupt mass marketing fraud (scam mail) in the UK. I practice Veganism, Feminism, The Hip Hop Declaration of Peace and other movements that promote compassion.

I am also a Pushcart Prize nominee, winner of the Prairie Seed Poetry Prize 2015/16 (Ice Cube Press), as well as a Kansas State University graduate with qualifications in Creative Writing, Literature, Theatre, and Women’s Studies.

I am happy to accept your donation, which will allow me to submit my work to more reputable poetry competitions and publications, without the concern of how to pay the fee.

Thank you for your consideration,

Sea Sharp
