In Spring 2019, we were excited to expand further and bring 29 workshops and events to over 230 people in Washington, DC, Baltimore, and Northern Virginia. We are grateful to our venue partners - Loyalty Books, Capitol Hill Books, The Ivy at Bird in Hand, Greedy Reads, 202Creates, and Old Town Books - for helping the greater DMV area "get lit."
In Fall 2018, MoonLit was thrilled to offer creative workshops in creative spaces across DC and Baltimore - at The Ivy/Bird in Hand, Greedy Reads, Femme Fatale, and Duende District. Classes ranged from bookmaking to play writing to using tarot to inspire your fiction.
Summer 2018 - Art in the Park
Inspired by the vibrancy of DC's people and places, Art in the Park was MoonLit's first series of programs, which consisted of $5 art-based workshops in public parks to inspire creative minds of all backgrounds running Memorial Day through Labor Day, 2018.
DC Lit Crawl
In 2016, 2018, and 2019 MoonLit teamed up with Barrelhouse to bring contemporary and engaging literary voices into DC neighborhoods, showcasing and celebrating local literary artistry. Our 2016 crawl took place in Petworth, 2018 in Columbia Heights, and 2019 in Eastern Market. Check out this DCTrending Article on our 2019 Lit Crawl by Lauren Woods.
MoonLit has offered one creative retreat, in November 2017. Creative retreats are designed to bring together female identifying creatives for an afternoon of hiking, writing, crafts, and company. If you would like information on an upcoming retreat, contact Kris at email@example.com.
MoonLit has co-hosted two author tributes with Loyalty Bookstore in Washington, DC - one for Mary Oliver in January 2019 and one for Toni Morrison in August 2019.
From January 2018 - December 2018, MoonLit hosted a monthly write-in for ten female-identifying writers in the DC area. Each write-in was designed to be a "dedicated time and space to sit in the company of other creatives and just have a second to write."
