DC Women Poets read from their works as part of DC SWAN Day
“Poets on the Fringe/POTF” meets once a week on Wednesday’s, from 7pm to 9pm, at the Georgetown Neighborhood Library in Washington, DC. Everyone in the group comes from a different background and has a unique style in which they speak a language of hope, fear, delight, sadness, intrigue, and passion. Topics range from the personal to political: educational, philosophical, historical, sensual, spiritual, healing, death, family, beauty, violence; the human race! POTF has published three books, done a video series for the GTN Library’s website and participated in Public Readings at the GTN Neighborhood Library, Politics & Prose, Bus Boys & Poets, Kensington Bookstore & Day of the Book, Iota Bar & Restaurant, Zed’s Café and the Lorton Workhouse Art Center. Additionally, POTF poets have published their own books and are featured online & in many other publications around the USA.
