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!
Alive Alice Glover Interview
August 19, 2022
The 2022 fest is winding down and registration for 2023 begins on September 1. A new postcard poet saw my stash here at Casa del Colibrí and said: “I’m going to get intro Group 1 next year!” Yes, the hardcores sign up right away. And what could be more hardcore than writing 40+ postcard poems when you are 96? Meet Alice Glover, mother of postcard legend Ingrid Bruck, with whom we had a chance to chat on August 12, 2022 about her love of postcards and her life. Thank you Alice! You are an inspiration.
