Cascadia Poetics LAB
On September 1, 2021, SPLAB officially changed name to Cascadia Poetics LAB. Our new name and design reflect our mission:
Empowering people to practice poetry & deepen connections to place, self & the present moment.
We believe that poetry is the nexus
at which self-knowledge, bioregionalism and expansive creativity converge. Cascadia Poetics Lab is a vibrant community whose workshops, festivals, and opportunities for connection can open the door to transformative experiences.
our name, Cascadia Poetics LAB, expands our poetic mission to the Cascadia Bioregion, beyond Seattle.
our logo combines the iconic image of Mt. St. Helens rising out of an open book – representing deepening of connection to ‘place’ (the bioregion of Cascadia) through the practice of literature (rising out of a open book). Our palette is wide, diverse and saturated – representing the opportunity for bold, varied, inclusive and expansive creative expression.
we hope you’ll join us in our continuing annual events:
- Poetry Postcard Festival
- Cascadia Poetry Festival (site coming soon)
