Did your card get there? Could anyone read your handwriting? Do you want to try to match a postcard poet’s face with their handwriting and poetry? Maybe that all could happen at the Postcard Fest Open Mic.


Saturday September 10 there is an open mic for postcard fest participants to read 2-3 poems you wrote and maybe show some images of the favorite cards you received. There will be a three minute time limit. (Hoping for 75 minutes tops.) The link is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/2064225002. The event will start at 9am PDT (12N EDT).

Last time people read cards of other participating poets, but do that only with advance permission. Really. Don’t be THAT GUY! We are hoping to double the number of LIKES on this year’s Postcard Fest Open Mic video. Last year:

See you in Zoomlandia!

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!
