Poetry for the People

Art and learning can be a welcome distraction or a method 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, provides exercises to develop that technique, and provides a workshop each class meeting.
