Sunday, June 4, 2023 marks one month left before the start of the 2023 Poetry Postcard Fest. Earlybird registration closes and we’ll answer questions about the fest for newcomers, discuss fest developments such as the Poetry Postcard Fest Project Board and unveil the latest Day Song exercise.
What: Poetry Postcard Fest Open House
Where: Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/2064225002
When: Sunday, June 4, 2023 3pm PDT, 4pm MDT, 5pm CDT, 6pm EDT
We’ll gather to discuss the fest, its origins, the project board and the September 8, 2023 Day Song opportunity. The Day Song is a daylong writing ritual based after similar efforts by Bernadette Mayer and Pierre Joris. The notion is that after 56 days of writing poetry postcards, which have a spatial restriction, on September 8 participants plan a whole day to write as a vision quest. A handout will be offered. There is no cost for this event, though contributions to the Cascadia Poetics Lab, the fest’s sponsoring organization, are always welcome. We hope to see you in the Zoom Room. I hope to record the session for those who cannot attend.
