As of January, 2017, the Cascadia Poetics LAB is being developed as an Arts Society based in British Columbia. Our mission and vision will be clarified in the months ahead to deepen our focus on bioregional poetics.
We are in the process of creating a bi-annual bioregional poetry festival in Cumberland, BC, starting Sept 8-10, 2017.
The Cascaadia Poetics LAB mission is to facilitate a cultural investigation of the Cascadia bioregion using poetics and poetry festivals as main methodologies and build bioregional community through shared experience of the spoken and written word.
We accomplish that through:
Make It True: Poetry from Cascadia (Anthology published by Leaf Press) and
Innovative Cascadia Poetics – a Massive Open Online Course offered by Cascadia College in Bothell, WA.
