Politiics & Prose is revealing an artsier side to Washington with a new in-house printed literary journal. The idea is to show that Washington isn’t all politicians, lobbyists and lawyers.
District Lines, according to a release, is edited by Susan Coll and contains essays, short fiction, poems, sketches and photography on quirky and serious subjects ranging from a sighting of Effi Barry on a Metro bus to an August night on the Q Street Bridge to hotcakes at the Florida Avenue Grill to an ode to the Dupont Circle metro escalator.
Contributors will read from it on June 15 at the book shop. The cost of the journal: $15. It goes on sale today.
