Poetry Postcards: A Panel and Conversation

Poetry Reading/Spoken Word

Each August, hundreds of people from around the world participate in a poetry-postcard exchange, the August Poetry Postcard Fest (APPF), writing and mailing a poem each day. With the publication of APPF’s 10th-year anthology, 56 Days of August, and the renewed and widening interest in postcards, this event will open a conversation about the possibilities of postcard poetics. The panelists (Tallie Jones, Nancy Pagh, Eugenia Hepworth Petty, Ina Roy, Joanna Thomas, plus moderator Paul Nelson) are poets, artists, educators and avid fans of the postcard.
