I came across this in The Coastal Current blog postings and thought it sounded like a great event. I think I will make a note of it on the SPI Forum and maybe that will generate some additional interest. The web site says they have extended the deadline for poetry entries until April 21, so all you SPI poets can still participate!
Inaugural Rio Grande Valley International Poetry Festival & 2nd Annual Poetry Pachanga!!
The web site indicated that readings and workshops were to be held across the region and the PI Lighthouse and Museum was mentioned. Anyway, just thought I would pass the message along. Next year, maybe Paragraphs can provide one of the venues for this festival.
The dates are: April 24, 25, 26, and 27, 2008
