About 56 Days of August

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.
