The mission of The DC Poetry Project Weekly Blogtalk Radio show is to provide a forum to examine topical events and contemporary issues through the power of poetry. Hosted by Dr. Michael Anthony Ingram, the live format offers poets and spoken word artists opportunities to showcase their own poetry and/or the works of others, and give voice as well as bear witness to the social, cultural, racial, political, sexual, health, global, gender, economic and environmental issues that affect all of our lives. The FREE call-in number is (646) 716-8754. We may be physically located in Washington DC, but our love for poetry is worldwide! If there are questions, please call the DC Poetry Project Office at 202-540-0327 or email letpoetryring@gmx.com.
