Now that AWP has left Seattle, we can turn our attention to bioregional poetry matters. The Small Press Fair at the Cascadia Poetry Festival is accepting registration and those already registered include Pageboy Magazine, Wilfrid Laurier University Press, Headmistress Press, Ravenna Press, Cascadia Now!, The Common Acre and StringTown Press. We’d love to see your favorite NW publisher in on this amazing deal. Capacity of the Pigott Auditorium is 411 and the festival takes no cut from Small Presses. The Fair happens in Paccar Atrium on the Seattle U campus, right outside the Pigott Auditorium, the festival’s Main Stage. $100 to register and that includes 4 weekend Gold Passes. Registration information is here. Our thanks to Seattle U for the use of the facilities.
