If you were wondering how to make a difference – this seems like a great start!
From a reader:
“I’m helping to start a new DC nonprofit called Capitol Letters Writing Center (www.capitolletters.org) dedicated to teaching creative writing and other kinds of writing workshops for kids aged 6-18. This spring we held our first workshops, and we are running a few different ones this summer. Eventually, we plan to open a space of our own in Columbia Heights and offer workshops and after-school tutoring there.
I’m writing because we’re hosting trivia night at Looking Glass Lounge this Thursday with the goals of 1) having fun, 2) raising our profile, and 3) meeting smart, engaged people who’d be interested in volunteering with us. We held a happy hour event at Looking Glass back in May and it was great, and of course trivia night is always a blast, so this should be a rockin’ good time. “
