I am a young college student and poet in the D.C./Metro area looking to participate in an open mic or other poetry reading. Really, I'm looking to get noticed and want to have my work published. Any help that can be given would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Chronicle,

 

I don't know much about poetry..

There is a wide variety of resources at local book stores, or maybe at local super markets like Whole Foods.

 

Peace,

Lucy

Hello Chronicle,

Why don't you post some samples of your poetry here and I will make sure

to show them off to some members of our DC Art Community.
