April 8th – Poems Are Where I Tell the Truth: Being Honest with bridgette bianca

In this three-hour intensive workshop, we will say the things we never thought we would, no matter how silly or serious the subject

Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center 681 Venice Blvd Venice Beach Los Angeles, CA 90291

Saturday, April 8 · 11am – 2pm | Click here for details

There’s something about poetry that begs you to be honest. Unsure of yourself as an adult? Feeling like a badass? In a complicated relationship with food delivery services? Still have love for your ex? Haunted by those bangs you had in high school? Manifesting a life of abundance? Not sure how you feel about toppling the prison industrial complex? No matter how silly or serious the subject, join us for a workshop where we will say the things we never thought we’d say through poetry.

Poems are where we tell the truth . . . sometimes. But the art of performance or awareness of the reader or just plain fear can sometimes dull the sharp edges of our honesty. We’ll look at poems from folks who are good at being honest about what hurts and heals them, what makes them smile fondly or wince dramatically, and what makes them lay awake at night in wonder. And then we will dig into our own truths and tuck some of them into poems. . . if only to be honest with ourselves.

 

This workshop is for all ages.
