New! Introducing the "Write Before Beltway Workshop!"
"An hour before slam sign-up the DMV's very own Twain Dooley will facilitate a workshop for only $5. This workshop doubles as a Beltway fundraiser and as a new opportunity for poets to gather, network, write, share, and/or relax in camaraderie before the slam begins! This is also a great way to ensure that you get there early enough to secure a spot on the list."
