Joaquin Miller Cabin Poetry Series, American Ensemble Theatre, and More

Tonight is American Ensemble Theater's FREE staged reading of Larry Shue's Wenceslas Square, directed by Krista Cowan. This admission-free series is co-sponsored by The Writer's Center. Workshop leader Martin Blank is a co-founder of this theater. You can read a nice write-up in The Washington Post from earlier this week here. The story is in the same article with one of our Bethesda friends Round House Theatre. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Jane Fox Reading Room.

About the Play:
In Larry Shue's dark comedy, an American professor and his student find themselves in danger as they struggle to discover what happened to the rebellious Czech theater movement. Visit their Web site at

Workshop Leader Rose Solari

Rose Solari's poem, "Math & the Garden," will appear in the anthology, Initiate: An Oxford Anthology of New Writing, forthcoming from Oxford University Press and Blackwell Books in November, 2010. In June, Rose will lead a seminar at Oxford's Kellogg College Creative Writing Series, entitled, Divided by a Common Language: Divergent Paths in British and American Poetry. Unfortunately for those here in the DC area, Rose's A Sense of the Whole workshop has already begun.

Great subject. I have been playing around with the idea of the comment structure recently.
I think now Internet user are increasing day by day so company are preferring online marketing now.
I think that Marketing Online is still the best choice, cause we have high ROI´s with less investments, especially with SEO.
