If you haven’t made your summer plans yet, this might be a good time to start thinking about the writing months ahead. When it comes to writing festivals and retreats, summer begins in May. Below is a selection of 2016 goings-on in the wider Cascadia region. Some of these events have fees and require applications. Follow the links for more information.

Calendar page

…and you really oughta take a look at the CALENDAR page. Cascadia events are updated almost daily throughout the year, but April is looking pretty impressive — and it doesn’t even include all the scores of appearances on the agenda for our Poets Laureate, Tod Marshall (Washington) and Peter Sears (Oregon).

If your Cascadia poetry event is open to the public and you’d like to have it included, leave a Comment on any page with the following information: Date, City, BRIEF description, Time, Location, Link where someone can get more information.

poet, submit

March 7, 2016

Yes we're open

Now and then, we encourage poets to submit their work to Cascadia-based print and online literary journals by posting a list of those that are currently accepting work for publication. This is one of those updates.

It is not a comprehensive list of publications that originate in Cascadia; it is only those that have pending deadlines. Also, it does not include contests, which typically have separate deadlines (i.e., Crab Creek Review, Pacifica Literary Review).

Read the publications before submitting and, of course, follow the guidelines to the letter. All dates are 2016.
