-Books can be signed to someone other than yourself--poems make the perfect gift!

1. Bid on an editorial session with a poet.
2. If you have the winning bid, we will set up a time for you & the poet to Skype for an editorial session OR we will get you in touch (via email) with the poet-editor for your manuscript consultation.

All proceeds from the auction will go to The Florence Project.

The Florence Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit legal service organization providing free legal services to men, women, and unaccompanied children in immigration custody in Arizona. Although the government assists indigent criminal defendants and civil litigants through public defenders and legal aid attorneys, it does not provide attorneys for people in immigration removal proceedings. As a result, an estimated 86 percent of the detained people go unrepresented due to poverty. The Florence Project strives to address this inequity both locally and nationally through direct service, partnerships with the community, and advocacy and outreach efforts.

The vision of the Florence Project is to ensure that all immigrants facing removal have access to counsel, understand their rights under the law, and are treated fairly and humanely.
