2009 Poetry Post Card Project
« on: January 10, 2009, 03:14 PM »
Dear Poets,

Call for participants to the 2009 Poetry Postcard Project inspired by Organic
poetry Guy Paul Nelson http://organicpoetry.com/

Come join the fun.

Just imagine going to your mailbox and finding a postcard in it with a few lines
of verse among all your bills and advertisements. Would that make you day?

What’s involved:

Write a poem on a postcard once a week, every week and mail it to someone on the
list.

Don’t agonize over what to write, just jot a few lines and send. It should be
fun and easy. Write about where your are, write about the postcard image, get
inspiration from postcards you’ve received. Remember you have an eager and
enthusiastic audience waiting for your words.

How to get started? Go to http://ConcreteWolf.com/perennial and Register..
Once you register you can add your address info and join the list. Please make
sure your address info shows up correctly on the list.

Be sure to check postage rates at http://USPS.com before mailing oversized cards
or mailing to other countries.

Any questions? email Lana at Lana.ayers@yahoo.com

Happy 2009,


PS I did the August daily project--that was tough--because its every day
but this is a weekly thing--and it's fun to get poetry on a post card in the mail
PLUS+ it confuses the hell out of your mail carrier :sunny
