The Society for the Promotion of Writers, Poets & Artists, (SPOWPA) officially began May 25th, 2009, born out of a vision and purpose to create a community of writers, poets and artists (and their friends and supporters), that is dedicated to encouraging and promoting the arts and the producers of art, locally and globally.
Starting small, just a seed, but opening a space for growth and opportunity as big as we can imagine.
Len Hodgeman, the founder, has over 30 years' experience as a business analyst and technical writer. He has written poetry since his teens, short stories over the last several years, and recently has been creating digital art.
He, and co-authors Lois Young and Inara Dubay, are in the last stages of publilshing a colleciton of short stories and poems titled "The Liar, The King and The Libertine." Target publication date is May 15th, 2011.
Let's come together, share our passions and skills, teach each other, learn from each other, and see what we can create!
