Postcards From Here

Cascadia Poetics Lab will be celebrating the Poetry Postcard Fest with its first in-person postcard event on July 14, 2024 at 11 A.M. PDT at the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle, WA! The event will feature three long-time Poetry Postcard Fest poets from around the country that will facilitate workshops focused on their personal approaches to writing and sending first-draft poems on postcards! Registration for this event is not required. Anyone with interest is encouraged to participate, and a background in poetry or writing is not necessary to have a meaningful experience. Thank you Tim Mateer, Abhaya Thomas and Colette Dutton for being a part of this. You will be a better collagist if you attend this free workshop. Thanks also to Heaven Quiban at Seattle Art Museum for arranging this event.

    This sounds very fun. My life was forever changed while backpacking though Kerouac’s corner while a world poetry gathering was going on. I’m glad there is a gathering happening next month in Seattle.
