August POetry POstcard Fest
The August Poetry Postcard Fest was initiated in 2007 by poets Paul Nelson and Lana Ayers. A call goes out on July 4th each year. Participating poets write three original poems directly (1st take) onto postcards addressed to the three names below them on the list of poets.

Participating poets then write one poem on a card to each person below those three on the list until the end of their list, ideally incorporating themes or motifs from cards they have received. Starting in 2013 a preliminary list went out in mid-July and some poets started their fest at that time, giving them 6 weeks to write at least 31 original postcard poems. This year lists will go out once a day when a new group of 32 has been filled.

You can also register for 5th Cascadia Poetry Festival in Tacoma, Oct 12-15, 2017, at the Washington State History Museum. www.CascadiaPoetryFestival.org
