give BIG May 5-6 powered by 501 Commons logoSPLAB GOT VERY CLOSE its Give Big goal of $1,500 today, getting to $1,411.54 thanks to several donors, including Larry Lawrence, Buffy Sedlachek, Greg Bem, Carol Sunde, Matthew Trease, Larry Laurence, Sally Hedges-Blanquez, Jared Leising, Clarissa Duran and Holly Hughes. Wow! We are so grateful for this support and via some very high class people. GIVE BIG ACCEPTS DONATIONS UNTIL MAY 15. https://www.givebigwa.org/splab-seattle-poetics-lab

This funding allows us to continue to produce our three main projects: The Cascadia Poetry Festival, POPO – The August POetry POstcard Fest (links in logos below) and our interviews which are currently produced as the project title (& book title) American Prophets.

That we can continue to operate during a pandemic shows how a small and wily organization can adapt and survive. There is a reason we have been around since 1993. We might call SPLAB a “prophetic organization” to use a phrase Fred Moten and Stefano Harney would use in their seminal book The Undercommons.

SPLAB gratitude and huge thanks goes out to all those people who help SPLAB do its thing.

Registration for POPO 2020 (year 14) closes July 18.
