Dear 2017 Capturing Fire Poets & Participants,
We will be holding Capturing Fire during Capital Pride Weekend which culminates with the LGBT March on Sunday June 11, 2017 at 10am.
This year’s gathering will bring in the largest group of Trans & Queer activists & allies to DC. With the current administration, our poetry is vital. This celebration is integral as our lives, liberties and pursuit of happiness are in peril.
The Poetry Slam focus of Capturing Fire will be June 9 and 10 with a series of Queer Arts Events starting Sunday June 4 at The Sparkle Open Mic at Busboys & Poets. We encourage you to check out our performances, workshops and events, as they unfold on our website. I cannot express my deepest thanks to all the Slams bringing reps this year.
Resist & Bring the Fire,
Regie Cabico, Capturing Fire Artistic Director
