POPLORISH is a regional magazine that seeks to publish emerging writers with a connection to the Pacific Northwest region either in content, authorship, or inspiration. We operate under the auspices of our parent company, Old Growth, a literary nonprofit for the Pacific Northwest headquartered in Seattle. Our primary goal is to provide layered storytelling, riveting imagery, and thought-provoking perspective.

Journal Postcard Poems and Prose

Who are we? Imagine a painter, photographer, novelist, and poet all running willy-nilly and meeting full-speed. That collision is Postcard Poems and Prose. We want you to find prose, poems, and art all in a 4×6 postcard format. We want you to be able to stand and look at that revolving wire rack that’s in every tourist trap on earth. We want you see it from your laptop or handheld device. Just like the postcards of yesteryear, we want you to be able to share that experience with friends. We want it to be quirky and personal. And we want it to be great.
