Perennial Postcard Signup (NEW!)

From Lana “Keeper of the List” Ayers:

Happy 2009!

Thank you for participating the perennial poetry postcard project. In 2008 nearly 130 people took part. It has grown to be a rich international community of poetry postcarders.

For this new year, we have a new list interface. So if you are ready to keep sending those wonderful poetry postcards, all you need to do is go to and register. Once you are registered you can view the list and begin sending postcards. The 2008 list site will come down in a few days, so the new list is the only one that will be available.

Please write and send at least one poetry postcard a week. The most important part is to have fun and keep the cards going. Don't agonize too much over what you write -- first thought, best thought. Remember how exciting it is for the person who is eagerly waiting to find a little note from you in her mailbox.

If you need to change your address, you can do this yourself. And if for any reason you need to drop from the list, you can do that yourself as well. Check the list frequently as there will be a new sign-ups all the time.

May 2009 be a most poetic year,


(Lana says there will be a separate list for the August (daily) Postcard Fest. Stay tuned.)

I have registered to the page with the list, but I seem to have forgotten my username/email/password. Can you help. My e-mail is if that is a better way to communicate. Thanks!

I was happy to blog this on the NewPages blog. I joined after the start of the year. Can you remind people to review the list for those that joined later? I know I printed out the list once I joined, but those who joined earlier may be surprised to see how many *new* people joined the list after the start of the year. It changes the "send to" list for many of us!
