August POetry POstcard Fest 14 (2020)
This event starts March 19, 2020, at 8:49pm PDT.
The August Poetry Postcard Fest was initiated in 2007 by poets Paul Nelson and Lana Ayers and is the biggest annual fundraiser for SPLAB, a 501(c)(3) literary-arts non-profit organization founded in 1993. We have moved up the 2020 fest due to the social distancing and COVID-19 virus quarantine situation.
Participating poets register for a (minimum) $10 contribution to SPLAB, get a list of 32 names & addresses of fellow participants (yours and 31 others) after March 19, 2020, write 31 original poems directly (1st take) onto postcards addressed to names below them on their list of poets. Documenting one's own poems before mailing is advised, but not required.
The official page for the fest is: http://paulenelson.com/august-poetry-postcard-fest/ See also the website for the anthology and for postcard poetry: 56 Days of August.com
All fees are non-refundable. Contributions are tax-deductible and the SPLAB IRS # is 91-1618296. Please make a note, the email address you use to sign up will be used to communicate festival details to you. There will be no exceptions to this policy.
Revenues derived from the August POetry POstcard Fest help sustain SPLAB, celebrating 26+ years of service to King County, Cascadia and the world via poetry postcards.
