How Can You Join?
To join, bring 20 copies of a poem three times to our monthly
meetings (you do not have to attend consecutive meetings.)
At the third meeting, we will decide if there is a mutual
fit. That is, you will decide if you are interested in joining
the Federal Poets. We will vote on acceptance. A negative
vote is very rare.
Who Can Join?
Any poet in the DC metro area is eligible to join. You do
not have to be a DC resident or employed by the Federal Government
to be a member. This organization is simply the equivalent
of any state organization.
Benefits of Joining
Members pay $20 membership dues per year and participate
in critiquing sessions monthly, submit poems for inclusion
in the bi-annual The Federal Poet
and participate in other group activities, such as joining
a group of poets at dinner after a meeting, readings in the
community, and the like.
