This is a weekly workshop group for anyone interested in getting some critical feedback on their work from others who read and write poetry. It's also a way to get poets and writers in the DC area together to meet and to share and discuss our influences and our own work. At each meeting members will share a poem and receive helpful comments so they can revise.

*NOTE: We mainly use this Meetup page for recruitment/general outreach to let people know we're here. There's an e-mail list that I use to communicate with people more effectively, and often people don't RSVP on Meetup. Let me know if you'd like to be added to the email list.

We meet at the MLK library, Room 220 on the south side of the room.

Please feel free to contact Emily Graves (emily.graves@dc.gov), with questions or for more information.
