Every step once taken in the first advance of the human race, from the amoeba to the highest type of intelligence, has been duplicated, every step exactly paralleling the one that preceded in the dead ages gone by. A perfect plagiarism results.Everything is and is new. Only the imagination is undeceived.
– William Carlos Williams, from Spring and All, 1923.

What did you do during your summer-of-no-summer vacation? Write any poems? Any postcard poems? Drink cocktails festooned with tiny umbrellas? Pine for heat? Go to China? We want a report and a taste of your latest writing in our growing community of poets. Bring new work, bring the work of someone else or come just to be in the engaging company of other writers. It is our third season in Columbia City and the suggested donation is $5 for Living Room. Paul Nelson is your facilitator and will offer Williams and his idea of the imagination to look at poems in a new way in the wake of the New Directions release of the facsimile edition of Spring & All.

Living Room happens in the new SPLAB in the Cultural Corner of the old Columbia School, between Rainier AV S and 36th AV S, on Edmunds. We’re 2 blocks from the Columbia City Link Light Rail Station. Parking is available on the school grounds.)
