Upcoming Events

Virtual Writing Happy Hour Series (Tuesdays, 5 PM)

cider_journal_small

Join us for a virtual, creative writing hour at the National Portrait Gallery! Our goal is to create a virtual space where writers can create, connect, and draw inspiration from the Portrait Gallery’s online exhibitions on Google Arts and Culture. Bring your own happy hour beverage of choice and write with us. We will provide writing prompts, and you are also welcome to bring your own writing project-in-progress. We will write for about 30 minutes and end each session with a brief discussion or reading. Register here for an upcoming happy hour.

Words Have Power: Poetry Writing Workshop

Join us for a celebration of the power of social action poetry! We will draw inspiration from reading and discussion of poems by women of color who have used their words to fight for social justice, and create a poem of our own.

During this workshop, you will practice experimenting with voice, rhythm, and poetic form to develop a poem that communicates a social message, connects with readers, and tells a compelling story. You will also learn how to create a mini-zine to showcase your poem.

Date: Wednesday, May 13, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EST or Wednesday, June 10, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Cost: $25
Register here.
