I have such delight in tallying up the stats for Poetry Postcard Fest when registration is over. Maybe it is the buzz of registration being over giving me time to have my own Poetry Postcard Fest experience. Maybe it’s that Poetry Postcard Fest is “an institution” as EVERY YEAR PARTICIPANT Janet McCann calls it. Regardless, here are some stats as tallied today:
544 participants (a 28% increase from 2019 and our largest group ever!)
11 represented countries
46 states (Why no Alaska, Delaware, Mississippi and South Dakota?)
3 Canadian provinces
Registration is at 60% capacity for our first Zoom Poetry Postcard Fest workshop Poetics as Cosmology, scheduled for six consecutive Saturdays at 10am PDT starting October 3, 2020. See: https://ppf.cascadiapoeticslab.org/2020/07/18/six-week-fall-zoom-workshop/
Huge thanks to all my Poetry Postcard Fest people for being part of this community. Registration for 2021 starts September 1, 2020 via Submittable.
