Ethelbert Miller, Richard Peabody, Kim Roberts, Christopher Sten, and Terence Winch. 

This program also inaugurates a new Wiki to collect information about poets, movements, publications, events, institutions, and broadcasts in DC from 1900 to the present to "provide a picture of the diverse and unique life of poetry that evolved over more than a century."
