What we’re about
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. Bring several copies of your poem.

- A Poetry Workshop: Tying someone else's Shoes or Style ;)Capital One Café, Washington, DC
Hey Poetry Lovers!
So this group is on a roll. This would be our third meeting since re-starting,
So, here's the plan: On Saturday, December 16th , from 11:30 am to around 1:30 pm at the Capital One Café in Chinatown. I think it's a cool spot, central for everyone, and easy to get to. I'll be there from 11 am, setting up and probably sipping on a coffee. If anyone wants to join early and help out or just hang out, you're more than welcome!
The café's got some good eats if you want to grab something there. But hey, no pressure – just make sure you're not hungry because while I promise great company and awesome poetry, I can’t promise free snacks, unfortunately!
This is all about our love for poetry, sharing our work, and just enjoying each other's company. Whether you’re a poetry pro or just getting started, your enthusiasm is what counts. Bring along your poems for feedback, or just ones you want to read, share and discuss—I’ll be reading some of my stuff too – can’t wait to hear what you think!
The challenge/ theme this time (as proposed by the group's last meeting) is to bring something that has to do with or is inspired by writing/ working in someone else's style.
Could you let me know by Thursday, December 14th if you’re coming? Just so I can figure out the seating and all.
Super excited to meet you all. Let’s make this an amazing poetry afternoon!
Catch you on Saturday,
