The yearly August Postcard Poetry Festival has become an international event.
To celebrate the 10th year of the Fest and the community that has developed around it, Paul Nelson (Co-Founder of the Fest), Ina Roy, and Judy Kleinberg will be editing an anthology of poems written for the 2016 August Postcard Poetry Fest. The anthology, 56 Days of August: Poetry Postcards, will be published in October of 2017. All revenues from the 10th August Poetry Postcard Fest will benefit the 4th Cascadia Poetry Festival in Seattle, Nov 3-6, 2016.
Why 56 Days of August? Since the fest call goes out July 4 and the list of participants a day or two later, we’ve taken a bit of poetic license with the Gregorian Calendar and made August longer.
