What we're about

Every year, A Splendid Wake pays tribute to various poets and poetry movements who make up the rich, diverse history of DC area Poetry. This year’s program features poets AB Spellman, Kim Roberts, Maritza Rivera, Truth Thomas, Abdul Ali with discussions of musical influences on poetry, new forms of poetry (born in DC), and a tribute to the late Dolores Kendrick, DC’s poet laureate. Join us for an exciting event. You just might come home with a free book of poetry.
