The Folklore Society of Greater Washington (FSGW) publishes the FSGW Newsletter monthly except for the July/August combined issue. It is available online. Printed copies are mailed to FSGW Members who pay for that additional service. Print copies are also available at FSGW events. It includes a comprehensive monthly calendar and listings of events of interest to FSGW members - concerts, dances, jams, workshops and weekends, and more.
