Call for poems about Georgetown, D.C.

Perhaps some of you are interested in this? I recently received this call for submissions. 



Since 1935 the Georgetown Neighborhood Library's Peabody Room has collected materials related to the history, culture, and economy of Washington, DC's oldest neighborhood.  Missing from this special collection of books, files, photographs, maps, newspapers, artwork, and objects however is POETRY!

Surely Georgetown's many residents and visitors have been inspired over the past 263 years since its founding to put pen to paper but none of these writings have been preserved.  Operating under the adage that "It's never too late," please consider donating an old or new Georgetown-themed poem to be added to the Peabody Room collection.  Future researchers (and poets) will thank you for your contributions.
