Call for Poets

The popular "Third Thursday" poetry series will begin its 10th season in September 2015. As in the past, the monthly series will showcase some of the finest poets in Takoma Park and in the region.


Each event features 3-4 poets. Readings are filmed and broadcast live on City TV and can also be watched online during and after the event.

The City of Takoma Park will promote each reading via our monthly newsletter and through email, web and social media platforms; poets are encouraged to do additional marketing and promotion.


Submissions are due October 2015.
