Charles Olson

Our weekly writer’s circle, Living Room, resumes Tuesday, January 4, 2011, as Your Friendly Neighborhood Splabman, Paul Nelson, presents an homage to Charles Olson, who would have turned 100 on December 27, 2010.

SPLAB thanks everyone who contributed in one way or another to the success of our literary arts project. Attendance for SPLAB is up 179% over the same period from last year, so we are incredibly grateful. This is why we’ve decided to have Living Room sessions in January. As they say in the biz, By Popular Demand.

Our community is growing and we hope you’ll consider stopping by to experience the engaging company of other writers and/or give us a taste of your latest writing. We meet at 7P in the Cultural Corner of the old Columbia School, off of Edmunds, west of Rainier. (Look for the SPLAB sign).

Happy New Year!
