Do you think there might be a poem in you?

Please join us in a workshop on learning how to express one's feelings through poems or non-rhyming verse. Whether you have something to share or just want to explore the idea of starting to write, this workshop is for you.

Susan Meehan, winner of the 2017 D.C. Poet Project, will lead the group.

Susan has a grant from the D.C. Commission of the Arts and Humanities to find ways to encourage senior villages to support continuing poetry/creative writing programs. This is the sixth of seven workshops sponsored under the grant serving the Dupont Circle, Palisades, and Waterfront Villages.

FREE TRANSPORTATION: Through a grant from the Lyft Community Foundation, village members can ride Lyft for free to and from Susan's workshop. The free ride service is administered through Lyft's Concierge Business service; to schedule a ride contact Robert Bettmann at at least 24 hours before you want the ride. The service is offered for rides to and from events.

A light lunch will be offered following the seminar.

Please contact Bob Meehan at or 202-815-7321 for information on the event or any questions.
