Splab as a Collective

December 18, 2011

On Tuesday, January 31, 2012, at 7PM SPLAB invites all poets, writers and fans of writing to attend an Open Board Meeting to discuss the future of SPLAB as a collective. Our lease at the Columbia School is set to expire at the end of August 2013, but could end sooner and could be extended. I’m committed to the current season (ending in June 2012) and two tentative events for the 2012/2013 season, that could or could not happen based on the decisions made by the collective that I and the current SPLAB Board envision. (This is based on the decision after the December 15, 2011 SPLAB Board Meeting.)

So if you have an interest in helping SPLAB evolve to the next level of existence in its 18 year history, please plan on attending and feel free to invite friends and associates. Please also bring a short poem or prose piece to read. Help is especially needed right now with bookkeeping, planning for the Cascadia Poetry Festival and marketing. With a child on the way in March and my own writing life consuming more of my time and interest, the time is right for me to open things up as never before if SPLAB is to continue and evolve. Thank you for your past support and consideration for the future.

Sincerely,

Paul E Nelson
