WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15, 7:30 PM-9:30 PM

Join us for a moderated discussion celebrating the diverse and vital community of writers living and working in the greater Washington, DC area as well as a reflection upon this year’s festival theme, “Unexpected Journeys.”

We’ll present a curated selection of fiction and non-fiction, and our eight writers will reflect upon the festival theme “Unexpected Journeys”. Audience members will have a chance to ask questions to individual writers as well as hear from the group collectively.
