SPLAB Living Room: Read. Listen. Be Inspired. STARTS OCT. 27!

Come to read new work for an intelligent critique, come to read someone else’s work that you find inspiring, or compelling, or come just to be in the engaging company of other writers. In the 2nd floor lounge of the Columbia City Cinema EVERY TUESDAY 7-9 PM, 4816 Rainier Ave S, in a room that looks a lot like the old SPLAB in Auburn, with thrift store couches and paint peeling from the ceiling. We’ll be there and hope you will be there too. $3-$10 suggested donation benefits SPLAB and helps us put on other events.
