We’re grateful to all the people who came out to celebrate the intersection of the Cascadia bioregion and poetry this past weekend. We’ll be posting links to videos and hopefully other material generated, or inspired, by the 4th Cascadia Poetry Festival, staged at the Spring Street Center, Common Area Maintenance and Open Books, November 3-6, 2016.
A huge thanks to all the volunteers, the Spring Street Center, 4Culture, Poets & Writers, the Tacoma Poetry Festival, Open Books, Common Area Maintenance, Cascadia Now, the Small Press Fair participants like Entre Rios Press and Talon Books and all the other sponsors and participants.
