About Postcard Poets

What is Postcard Poets?

Postcard Poets is a new way to discover poetry from both new and established poets. Selected by our curators, the poetry takes the medium of postcards and is delivered by post to readers across the world.

Who came up with this brilliant idea?

Sana Rao is a designer and a bibliophile from India, and Nikki Sylianteng, a designer and maker from Manila and California. They met at the MFA Interaction Design program at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Sana loves words, and Nikki loves mail. They are both drawn to those quiet little moments in a day when reflections and realizations happen.

Why use real mail?

Real mail is devoid of all the noise of email. We want to deliver serendipitous poetry to you with the romance of real mail and no disturbance from the internet.

When do I start getting my postcards?

Since we are following a monthly subscription model, you’ll be included in the next month’s mailing. For instance, whether you place your order on July 1st or July 31st, you’ll start receiving your postcards in August.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we do. It's $8/month for orders that ship internationally.

Are you going to make it hard for me to cancel my subscription?

Definitely not. We want happy customers. Canceling is as easy as dropping us an email at hello@postcardpoets.com.
