The video is produced and online. The first Poetry Postcard Fest open mic happened via Zoom on Sunday, September 13, 2020 at 4pm PDT with your humble narrator as host. There were poetry reading debuts, a couple of ramblers, some typical Zoom connection issues, lots of great work and Poetry Postcard Fest warmth. Enjoy:

    So cool to see and hear all of you! Thank you for sharing! It was wonderful!

    Couldn’t join the open mic because of a conflict, but I loved the video and the deep dives into so many reservoirs of creativity – such a treat! I am fascinated by so many stories of people participating in multiple groups and writing POPOs for longer than a month. How does that work? Are people registering more than once? Right now it feels like the only thing better than POPO in August is MORE months of POPO! Thanks to all, and especially to you, Paul, for bringing and keeping us together.

    Margaret, thanks for your kind words. Yes, some people signed up for more than one group.

Giving Tuesday 2023

Throughout the year, we organize events designed to foster a community of like-minded people centered around organic, open-form poetry, and an ecological philosophy that emphasizes a connection to our bioregion, its history and the indigenous people that lived here long, long before colonization. We aim to expose our supporters to ideas about art as an art-of-living practice, inspired by the spiritual practice of understanding the bioregion surrounding us: soil, air, water, flora, fauna, and weather. In 2023, we hosted a successful Poetry Postcard Fest and the 7th Cascadia Poetry Festival, along with launching Watershed Press and publishing our anthology Cascadian Zen Vol. I. This is all thanks to donations from people like you!
