      LYR's Poetry for the People: Devices, Part 1 - Imagery

      Love Your Rebellion's
      POETRY FOR THE PEOPLE
      A five week digital poetry course.
      Begins April 9th 8pm - 9pm
      Lead by LYR founder Angela Page
      Class limit: 15 people

      Art and learning can be welcome distractions or methods of healing in times of grief, distress, and strife. Connecting with others through art can also help ease us through this uncertain and sometimes lonely period. Love Your Rebellion created Poetry for the People to help folks refine their poetry skills and connect with other poets via a digital workshop. Each 60 minute course hosted via Zoom will teach a poetic technique, provide exercises to develop that technique, and provide a workshop for one poet per class meeting. Poetry for the People will be recorded, and then uploaded to LYR’s social media channels. Zoom link will be published in the event discussion on the morning of the workshop date. Each workshop is free to attend, but donations are encouraged.
