ORGANIZER: Paul E. Nelson
“We intend to have poets Skype in to our open mic, open mic with local poets, a lightning round (lots of haiku-length poems) and other events.”
We’ll celebrate this planet-wide event at SPLAB, an intergenerational spokenword Performance, Resource and Outreach Center in Seattle, with no less than ten hours of poetry featuring Suquamish native Cedar Sigo in his return to Seattle. Stalwarts of the Seattle literary community, Judith Roche, Carolyne Wright, Frances McCue, Jourdan Keith, Larry Matsuda, Carletta Carrington Wilson, Eugenia Toledo and others will be featured reading work that seeks to instill peace, sustainability, justice and mercy in a world desperately in need of all that at this critical time in history. The event starts at 11:30AM on 9.24.11.
SPLAB is an intergenerational spokenword Performance, Resource and Outreach center dedicated to Poetry, Story-telling, Conversation, Debate, Consciousness and Building community through shared experience of the spoken and written word.
