July 14, 2016
Though it’s not quite mid-July and August seems waaaay off, there are a couple of August opportunities with deadlines you may not want to miss.
Signups for the August Poetry Postcard Fest close on Sunday, July 17, 2016.
Signups for The Poetry Marathon close on Tuesday, July 19, 2016.
Both of these poem-generating events require a personal commitment and a certain amount of prep. But participating in one or both means that you’ll end up with a chapbook’s worth of poem drafts to show for your summer.
You can find more information on the August Poetry Postcard Fest (APPF) on the APPF website, the official call, the 56 Days of August site (about the APPF anthology) and 56 Days of August Facebook page.
P.S. These are both international events. Poets everywhere are invited to participate.
