Hello my friends,
I wanted to be sure to get the word out to you about some upcoming features and workshops that I will be holding this week! It's a privilege to close out Poetry Month with a bang! 

Thursday, April 30
Rooftop Poetry Workshop with Jessica M. Wilson, MFA
Topic: Beat Generation @ 6pm
$5

It all starts on Thursday, April 30th, the last day of Poetry Month, I'll be at The Hatchery, teaching a Poetry Workshop on the Beat Generation.

This is truly such an honor. It's something I have been wanting to do all my life and I feel so blessed that I have this opportunity to share what I love to do with the people.

This workshop is $5. It's held in the beautiful rooftop garden as we see the sun drape down into slumber.

Drinks, food, lesson, writing time, sharing... it's all good. We give critiques very respectfully. Come join us!

I know you will not be disappointed. The Hatchery is a great new resource for us Writers -- it's a complete and total office, write or read in total silence, or in community. Unlimited coffee and water, immaculate bathroom, printing, wifi, and air conditioning. Go up to the rooftop garden for the perfect inspiration to cure any writers' block.

The Flutist

Today, I found Bunny, who said faeries will arise with the blow of my husband's breath...
Warming under garments expose to the tickling friction of soft lips;
a combustible vibrato pattering down in tangy laps,
how it howls the name of dignity, integrity, and song self-pro-loined,
outstretched by racks of jasmine petals
twined gently around the softest thigh, making time.
A hum of gaining pleasure to lift and sway;
translucent vestibule,
orb dominated by the sound of fluttery melody.

- Jessica M. Wilson

Los Angeles Poet Society presents the LA LAureates!

Happy Happy Poetry Month! 

Los Angeles Poet Society is so honored and proud to bring two exceptionally selfless and brilliant Poets that hold the title Youth Poet Laureate and Poet Laureate of Los Angeles, respectively! 

Luis J. Rodriguez ran for the Governor of California in 2014 as a means to save the state and the people from drought in so many many ways. He began Tia Chucha's Centro Cultural with his wife, Trini Rodriguez, 14 years ago, as a way to outreach and build a safe community for all people. 

Amanda Gorman is a 17 year-old Poet, a student of California Poets in the Schools, and WriteGirl, Amanda was given the FIRST EVER Youth Poet Laureate of Los Angeles title. She is a creative and illuminating young Poet and Activist. She began One Pen One Page, inspired by her own ability to share her voice and the story of Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Malala. She serves to provide a voice to those who are not able to share their story, and empowers youth all over the world.











Also accompanying the Laureates is the music of beautiful Shaya Threats​! Shaya is an amazing Jazz and R&B singer, and we are so excited to have her with us!

Delicious Food from Faith will be served! Samples available, and lots of food for sale!

See you all at 4pm for the reception!
