The WPA is a great organization, that I highly recommend any emerging artist in the DMV to become a member of. Below is a sample of what the newsletters looks like.
After the break, you can read more about how the WPA are involved in quite a few things, including posting about shows (some of which you could be in), letting an artist know of various Call for Entries, as well as an offering of informative events.
