The Writers Workshop The semi-structured writers workshop will meet from 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. and be facilitated by DCPP organizers, members and other special guests. The workshop focuses on developing personal meaning in the writing process. The workshop strongly emphasizes process over final product. We believe that there are no right or wrong ways to express yourself, so please join us and help celebrate the power of poetry.  The DC Poetry Project strives to foster a non-judgmental, inclusive and accepting community.

The Poetry Reading The open mic for all begins at 12 p.m. The doors and sign-up lists open promptly at 11:45 a.m. So please come to share or just to listen and have fun! Poems may be on any subject, and you may read more than one, but we ask that you keep your time on the mic to three minutes. The open mic will go for as long as we have participants or until 1:30 p.m. The program will regularly feature local, regional and national poets.

This program is made possible thanks to our partnership with the DC Poetry Project.

book cover artSuzette Haden Elgin's books on The Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense offer brilliant techniques for managing verbal aggression. As a T'ai Chi teacher, Susan Lowell, tenleytowntaichi.com, has been delighted to find a verbal version of T'ai Chi's self-defense principles--always looking for the soft answer and never using force.

Using skills honed while getting her MA in education and kinesthetic learning, Susan developed an experiential primer of Suzette Haden Elgin's work. Participants in this workshop will leave this event armed with their own "cheat sheet" and a handy set of pocket cards that will serve as a reminder of the techniques learned.

Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality their lives are changed profoundly and forever, and they discover how hard it can be to truly live and how easy it is to kill.

We usually meet on the last Wednesday evening of each month at Kitty O'sheas DC in Tenleytown. Please RSVP to victor.benitez@dc.gov or visit http://www.meetup.com/youngprose.
