August POetry POstcard Fest 13 (2019)
The August Poetry Postcard Fest was initiated in 2007 by poets Paul Nelson and Lana Ayers and is the biggest annual fundraiser for SPLAB, a 501(c)(3) literary-arts non-profit organization founded in 1993. A call goes out on July 4th each year. Participating poets write original poems directly (1st take) onto postcards addressed to names below them on the list of poets.
Participating poets then write one poem on a card to each person on their list until the end of their list, ideally incorporating themes or motifs from cards they have received. Lists go out within 24- 48 hours after a new group of 32 has been filled.
The official page for the fest is: http://paulenelson.com/august-poetry-postcard-fest/
All fees are non-refundable. Contributions are tax-deductible and the SPLAB IRS # is 91-1618296. Please make a note, the email address you use to sign up will be used to communicate festival details to you. There will be no exceptions to this policy.
Revenues derived from the August POetry POstcard Fest help sustain SPLAB, celebrating 25+ years of service to King County and Cascadia.
