2021 Poetry Postcards received by Paul E Nelson

Look at the 53 cards I got in 2021:

If the baseball season can go into November, then postcard season can go late into October and I have been blown away by all the postcard love I got this year. I did hear some folks did not receive all of their cards and some cards were returned and I think the USPS did all they could to weather the “last guy” as Joe Biden calls El Caudillo Analfabetico, so we urge patience regarding cards that you are to receive.

Since workshop season ends November 4 and the Jan 2022 workshop season is now open for registration here, we can begin the process of interviewing participants from last year. If you are interested in being interviewed about your 2021 postcard experience, pick a slot and reserve it in the comments below. Ina Roy-Faderman will be joining me in this participant interviewing effort, which is a blessing. Thanks for being part of this community!

All times Pacific Standard Time. All interviews conducted via Zoom.

  7. Lawrence Pevec

    I’m traveling to Northern CA to spend time with my son Lucien between Nov 10 and 18. Id like to talk anytime after the 20th as I don’t know if I’ll extend my trip a few days.

  8. Paul Nelson

    Lawrence! You’d make a great interview subject. When you can settle on a time, please put it in the comments. We have two people doing interviews this year and, depending on what time is best for you, we can assign an interviewer. Wtanding by… Paul
