I'm happy to announce a new addition to the Petworth News arts listings (see left sidebar) - Beltway Poetry Quarterly, edited by Park View resident Kim Roberts:
Since January 2000, Beltway Poetry Quarterly has published poetry by authors who live or work in the capital of the United States. We strive to showcase the richness and diversity of DC-area authors in every issue. We have included Pulitzer Prize winners and those who have never previously published. We publish academic, spoken word, and experimental authors - and also those who defy categorization.
The Poetry News section is updated monthly. This section lists new book publications and new issue releases by local presses, calls for entries open to area writers, poetry readings, and other current events of interest.
The Resource Bank is an extensive links section for poets and their audiences in the greater DC region, including info about grants, writing classes, small presses, literary journals etc.
