DC Poetry Collective

We are a diverse group of enthusiastic poets at various stages of our writing lives. We meet weekly on Zoom to workshop poems and refine our craft.

Our Books

iNK BLOTS, Vol. 2

In our newly-released anthology, iNK BLOTS, Vol. 2, we take to the pen again to set you on a wild and sumptuous ride across our varied creativity. Proceeds from the book go to L’Arche Greater Washington, DC, whose mission is to provide group home living to adults with intellectual disabilities and their caregivers.

Watch our recent live reading at Lost City Books, based in Adams Morgan.

iNK BLOTS, Vol. 1

iNK BLOTS, Vol. 1 is the DC Poetry Collective’s first anthology of poems. Dedicated to all who have suffered at the hands of COVID-19, proceeds will be donated to Bread for the City, a Washington, D.C.-based charity on the frontlines of the pandemic response in our nation’s capitol.

Check out the recordings of our virtual readings hosted by Lost City Books.
