The August Poetry Postcard Fest was initiated in 2007 by poets Paul Nelson and Lana Ayers. On or about July 27 each year, participating poets write three original poems directly (1st take) onto postcards to the three names below them on the list. On August 1 poets then write one poem on a card a day to each person below those three on the list until the end of the month, ideally incorporating themes or motifs from cards they have received.
