What's a poetry incubator?

It basically means we love supporting work that leads to a deeper love of poetry.

Reading Series

Annual Poetry Events

These events are based in a deep understanding that
while the act of writing is a solitary practice, writers thrive
in community with fellow writers. Poetry Mutual fosters
the creation of events and observances grounded in place.

In the future we plan to sponsor workshops on
small press publishing and editing. All in support of one another, to create the networks that sustain us as creative and playful people. We most look forward to sponsoring folderol of all kind, to have events where poets and lovers of poetry can have a good time. What could be better than that?

We are based in Washington, DC, but would love to support poets and writers in other places. If you’re interested in creating community among poet-friends, to support one another, to teach one another, please get in touch with us today.
