Dear 2018 Capturing Fire Poets & Participants,
We will be holding Capturing Fire during Capital Pride weekend – June 8 & 9, 2018 in collaboration with Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Washington, DC.
Capturing Fire, in it’s 8th year, is a celebration of Trans & Queer Spoken Word Poetry. We are grateful to our collaborative partners Split This Rock, Poets & Writers, Beltway Poetry Quarterly, Hot Damn, It’s A Queer Slam, Busboys & Poets, Studio 3440 & The DC Commission for the Arts & Humanities.
This year we will also release our first anthology publication as Capturing Fire Press, as well as debut collections by Brendan Gillett & Kita Marshall.
Please spread the word, for the first time, our evening slams and events are free.
Resist & Bring the Fire,
Regie Cabico, Capturing Fire Artistic Director
