Giving Wanda Coleman Breathing Room

Wanda Coleman

Our campaign to help Wanda Coleman was not as successful as we envisioned, but we are grateful for those who did step forward and help the legendary L.A. poet. A tip of the hat and Seasons Blessings to:

Dana Levin
Dennis Cooper
Anonymous – $250
Laura Vecsey
Katha Pollitt
Peter Money
Jared Burton

After IndieGogo takes its cut, and Paypal theirs, we’ll pass the rest to Wanda and keep you all, and the anonymous contributors, in our thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,

Paul Nelson
SPLAB Founder and
Wanda Coleman fan
