October 25-27, join publishers, authors, and plain old book lovers for potlucks in the pavilion, readings, workshops, walks by the sea, and maybe even some karaoke at the Sou’wester Lodge and Trailer Park in Seaview, Washington.
Apply for our poetry fellowship: Bring or mail up to 7 pages of poetry to Mother Foucault’s Bookshop (523 SE Morrison St) by Wednesday, September 25. Clearly write your name, phone number, address, and list of titles on the cover page only. Selection will be made by blind jury and announced on Monday, September 30. The Airstream Poetry Fellow will spend the week prior to the festival in the Sou’wester’s Potato Bug trailer and share their work at the Saturday night reading.
Tickets for the festival: Tickets are available for $20; in person at the bookshop, at the Sou’wester front desk, or online via Brown Paper Tickets.
Lodging at the Sou’wester: Lodging on-site is first come, first served. To book your lodging for the festival, contact the Sou’wester BY PHONE–(360) 642-2542–and mention the Airstream Poetry Festival through Mother Foucault’s Bookshop.
Other places to stay in Seaview/Long Beach: If the Sou’wester’s lodgings fill up, you can still buy a festival ticket (which includes potluck dinner Friday and omelette breakfast on Saturday). We recommend the Adrift Hotel or Seaview Motel and Cottages.
We’re looking for sponsors for the festival!
If you’re a business that would like to partner with us by placing your product, service, or funds amongst festival attendees (hint: writers need booze, food, recreation, and transportation, as well as funding for the above), we are more than happy to sing your praises on our robust social media platforms and to send enthusiastic new audiences your way. For festival sponsorship information and questions, please email heather[at]mindthebirdmedia[dot]com
