The Joaquin Miller Cabin Poetry Series takes place Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. in Rock
Creek Park, Picnic Area Number 6, during June and July. Two poets are usually
featured, reading their original poetry. The outdoor programs held next to poet
Joaquin Miller's Cabin are sponsored by The Word Works, and the National Park
Service. Kathi Morrison-Taylor, Rosemary Winslow and Melissa Tuckey are the
co-directors for 2008. A reception at the Presbytarian Church 16th & Kennedy
Streets follows every reading. Entrance is through alley on Kennedy Street with
parking in the rear of the church.
IF SELECTED, you will read your work at the cabin and receive a small
honorarium. Copies of a poster/flyer (self-mailer) will be available for you to
send to friends and colleagues. If you have books published, you may sell them
at the reception. If you live out of town, need a place to stay, an effort is
made to provide lodging by the director and Word Works staff.
