This is a great event, and is completely volunteer run and supported. Money from tickets and sponsoring breweries, publishers, community groups goes directly to facility costs, travel expenses for participating poets, and hopefully even a small stipend for their time.
We’re still looking for community sponsors!
We have a whole range of ways to sponsor, and lots of great benefits. We need breweries for our regional beer slam, small presses for the fair, and in addition, community sponsors and invidual contributions are very welcome! Contributions can be made through the Cascadia Poetry Festival page (paypal), by check, or you can contact Paul Nelson directly a firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 422.5002 to arrange sponsorship or for media inquiries.
