Welcome to the Georgetown Lombardi Arts & Humanities Program (AHP) newsletter. In this week's newsletter we are happy to share a recap of the 7th annual Poetry Café and to announce the dates for our FREE late spring and summer online classes.
Recap: 7th Annual Poetry Café
On April 21 a group of MedStar Georgetown University Hospital patients, caregivers, associates and community members gathered online for the 7th annual Poetry Café.

The annual event, sponsored by the Arts and Humanities Program and the Department of Mission and Pastoral Care, celebrates the healing that comes through the written word as it is spoken. This year, readers shared meaningful pieces of writing based on the themes: “Reconnect, Re-engage, Renew.” 

Please join us next year for the 8th annual Poetry Café. Submissions will begin in February, 2023. To submit your poem, or for more information, please contact Sarah Burt at

how far I have come
since those days
the ceiling that spun
sees me in a new phase

”you made it,” I hear
yet this other side
still full of fear
lacks a certain stride

to turn the page
says I am alive
