Cascadia Poetry Indiegogo Here!

Please be part of the 3rd Cascadia Poetry Festival. A truly grass roots festival and cultural investigation of the bioregion we know as Cascadia, stretching from Cape Mendocino, CA to Mt. St. Elias, Alaska.

We have four days of some of the most amazing poets from Cascadia and one Griffin Award-winning poet/political activist who can help us understand more deeply the place in which we live and how to negotiate the challenges inherent in this time of whole-systems transition. Robert Bringhurst, Brenda Hillman, Sam Hamill, Susan Musgrave and Barry McKinnon are among the heavyweight poets who you can hear, converse with and share a drink and discussion about the poetry of here.

You can read your own work at Living Room, take a workshop from our esteemed poets and attend the late night (party!) programming led by one of the up & coming curators in Seattle’s poetry scene. Meet your neighbor poets, transcend boundaries and understand the deeper autonomy of nature herself and the unique culture of this place.

Our budget goes to pay poets, help with travel expenses, lodging and food, as well as documentation. All expenses have leveraged very good local deals, often coming in at 25% of cost to help PAY THE POETS. By buying a Gold Pass you not only gain admission to the fest, you help it exist and increase the chances the fest will happen again.

The festival has always given students tremendous discounts to attend the festival and your contribution helps that tradition continue.
