AUGUST IS ALMOST UPON US...LET THE POETRY GAMES BEGIN
Some of you may recall my going on about the postcard poem exchange I participate in in August. You sign up, make a copy of the list you're on, get yourself a bunch of postcards and stamps (mostly US; Paul E. Nelson and Lana Hechtman Ayers started it about 5 years ago and they're from the Seattle area so the majority of participating poets are from the States) and write/send a card a day for the entire month. More details and/or sign up here .
Some of mine from 2007 are right here on this blog. I picked up some neat postcards earlier this year in anticipation of the August poetry fest.
For the truly masochistic among us there's the 3:15 Experiment. Every night for the month of August you set your alarm for 3:15 AM, wake up, grab your pen and notebook which will be waiting expectantly by your bed, and write whatever comes into your sleepy head. You can post the resulting poems on the website, but NO EDITING first!
