Join us for a special four-part series with D.C.'s own Mosaic Theater for National Poetry Month. When does a poem cease being a poem and become a play?  Join playwright Gethsemane Herron-Coward as she leads a series of workshops examining poetry and lyricism in playwriting.  Attendees will create and share their own poetry-infused one-act play in the concluding session.
