Airstream Poetry Festival & Fellowship

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.

We are proud to announce the Winner of our Poetry Fellowship this year is Harrison Harb! As the 4th Annual Airstream Poetry Fellow, Harrison will spend the week prior to the festival in the Sou’wester’s Potato Bug trailer and share his 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. Tickets must be purchased in order to attend the festival.

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.
