Cascadia Poetry Festival Update

We are in the final stages of preparation for next weekend’s Cascadia Poetry Festival, which is shaping up to be quite the amazing event, and we’d like to thank you  all for your support as Paul and I await our own amazing event: the birth of our daughter Ella, well–any moment now!

Cascadia Gold Passes

Cascadia Gold Passes

Please be aware that Gold Passes are now extremely limited and they may be sold out by March 24th. Only a few spots will be open at the door Saturday morning. The badges are VERY cool, and get you into every reading and workshop. PLUS, they are the ONLY way to get into the exclusive morning sessions.

Saturday night’s official kick-off celebration and party is NOT TO BE MISSED.  Brian McGuigan brings his Cheap Beer/Wine mojo to the South End  with Great Beer & Poetry, and gets a little help from Breadline series co-founder Greg Bem.  Beer from Elysian Brewery plus a host of readers ensures one heckuva time. Shenanigans start at 9:30pm, $5 suggested donation. Free for Gold Pass holders. More info here.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! Are you available to volunteer? We need a few extra hands on deck. Contact pen@splab.org. Also on Sunday: we are thrilled that Breadline series co-founder Alex Bleecker will be hosting an Open Mic following our closing reading that features Sam Hamill and Richard Olafson.  Open Mic will start around 8pm, be there or be square!

Full Schedule and EVEN MORE details!
See you all Saturday, March 24th.
