End of 2012 Fest

I have posted my end-of-August blog post online here: and have scheduled posts for all my 2012 poetry postcards on that same website. They will appear one per day until October 4.

Here is the card that I got from Brendan McBreen:

The quality of the cards was much higher than in previous years and the production was the best I have ever seen. I have read that more people are actually doing the fest as suggested, meaning having an experience of spontaneity, rather than pre-cooking the cards and then sending. At this writing I have received 27 cards and have been assured that one more is coming.

There is a bit of explication to the card posted today, but I'll post the text of it here:

Special thanks to Brendan McBreen for his work on fest administration this year and to all the 160 poets around the world who participated.

Almost time to start again, isn't it? I mean, if one believed in calendars, and all that scum.
