Please join us for our next installment in the popular Third Thursday Poetry reading series. Four local poets will read their work on a variety of themes with a reception following the reading. The poets include Judith Bowles, Jona Colson, Kristin Ferragut, and NaBeela Washington. This free event is sponsored by the City’s Takoma Park Arts cultural series.

Bowles earned her MFA at American University where she taught creative writing. Colson’s first poetry collection, Said Through Glass, won the 2018 Jean Feldman Poetry Prize from the Washington Writers’ Publishing House. Ferragut’s poetry has been published in several journals, and she is a regular contributor at open mic poetry nights. Washington is pursuing a master’s degree in creative writing and poetry at Southern New Hampshire University.
