A FEW YEARS AGO, PAL PEGGY POET (AKA Peggy Miller), said, Hey! Let’s email “postcard poems” to each other every day for the month of August! And we did! And it was a blast! I am telling you, nothing lights a fire under MY creativity like a deadline—and Peggy’s invitation gave me thirty-one deadlines to meet.
What I didn’t know was that Peggy’s idea is a THING! Initiated in 2007 by poets Paul Nelson and Lana Ayers, the annual Poetry Postcard Fest is the poet’s answer to NaNoWriMo. A well-organized, collaborative, creative event, Poetry Postcard Fest provides both inspiration to write during the dog days of summer and a dynamic way to share your work with interested others. Register by July 27th!
