Poems for Peace 2014

Poems4PeaceSeattle

Last Year’s Poster

I am planning the third Poems for Peace event on September 21 at 7PM at Spring Street Center.  Last year this was the post. This was how I connected the poetry postcard fest with the Poems for Peace event and with peace-making in general. Here is the audio from last year. We plan a performance of about 90 minutes and lots of time to hang out and eat, drink & mingle. Postcard poets are welcome to attend and read a poem or two, especially if there is a peace connection, though that is implied with the project. See this post for the postcard fest. And we’ll have some lodging for people who plan ahead and want an overnight stay in Seattle. See: our current Airbnb listings here for

Room 1: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/3143227

Room 2 is here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2593263
Room 3: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1763809 and
Room 4: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2593176

I hope you’re join us in the effort to celebrate community and praise peace in this time of whole-system transition with so much blood in this world being spilled.
