Spread the Word: Poetry Is All Around
In early Washington, most poetry was found in books. These days, poetry is on the streets, in the parks, in colleges, coffeehouses and embassies. You can hear it murmured, shouted and sung by professors, lawyers, ballplayers and teens.

Karren Alenier, president of Word Works, a Washington-based press, opens the Miller Cabin poetry series in Rock Creek Park. Evening readings have been held at the cabin since 1976.
