About the DC Poet Project: 
The DC Poet Project was created to support participation in the practice of professional poetry through a partnership between Day Eight, the DC Public Library, Upshur Street Books, the American Poetry Museum, Brink Media, and LISC DC, and through funding from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. In addition to a poetry workshop and reading series events the project will result in publication of a new book of a poetry by a DC poet.
