I would love to see people write about their particular experiences with the fest AFTER it ends. I try to write on September 1 each year. You can write about your experience, struggles, themes, methods, &c. You can also write about cards you get. Consider and thanks to everyone who is participating. Consider also taking a photo of all the cards you’ve received as well. Those are amazing to see.

For those who missed the deadline, please note that the next call goes out July 4, 2019 at 12:01am, PDT. Consider registering early.
