Participants will gain experience writing in a variety of poetic forms, such as the abecedarian and tritina, in a safe and supportive environment. Slipform gives writers an opportunity to hone their craft while examining a multitude of fierce poetic voices from Essex Hemphill to Marie Ponsot. 

Slipform workshops and retreats are led by Danielle Evennou, co-host of Sparkle, DC's long-running queer open mic and winner of the Larry Neal Award for poetry. This is an inclusive workshop. Experienced and new writers welcome.

Workshop and retreat participants will have the opportunity to publish their work in the Volume 2 Slipform chapbook and read at a special Slipform celebration reading.

*For those unable to pay the full registration fee for either the workshop or the retreat, a limited amount of financial assistance may be available. Please inquire by emailing dmevennou@gmail.com.

This project is funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
