City of Poets Jan 31, 2012 7P

We’re turning SPLAB over to a collective, a poetic commons, a City of Poets. With the exception of two dates in the Fall, the 2012/2013 SPLAB season is yours to design. It requires a commitment, but that’s to be determined. We want to stick with writers and our bias is poets. We want folks who want to grow in their own work. Please bring a short poem for the Living Room at SPLAB, 7PM on Tuesday, January 31, and come to tell us how you’d like to see SPLAB evolve; what project you have dreamed of doing with poets. We’ll suspend critique for the evening.

SPLAB is at 3651 S Edmunds in the former Columbia School. Just off Metro’s 7 or 8, a couple of blocks from the Columbia City Link Light Rail station with plenty of free parking, join the commons. We’ll also talk about Cascadia.
