CPLAB Mission & Vision

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.

Our Mission

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:

The Cascadia Poetry Festival.

The Deep in Cascadia Poetics Retreat.

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.
