The main festival page will be the same for Cascadia III in Nanaimo, April 30-May 3, 2015 and more details are coming soon about the particulars of that festival, so stayed tuned to your friendly neighborhood E-Fishwrapper.
Also, news on the upcoming anthology, 100 Innovative Cascadia Poets, to be published by Leaf Press and the free MOOC on Innovative Cascadia Poetry is also forthcoming.
