Poetic Affair is a series of one-night events that consists of part poetry slam and part featuring artist showcase. Here, our artists get to be discovered within the community, and they get more exposure to the arts.
All poets of all ages, especially high school students, are encouraged to participate in the open mic while also joining the audience for a showcase of the featured poets.
We are always seeking partnerships with established poetry collectives to provide our community with events. All donations are managed to promote further events. Sign up for Poetic Affair below.
FLIP THE SCRIPT
Flip The Script Series is a free workshop series instructed by award-winning and internationally produced writer Juan Ramirez, Jr.
Whether it's a screenplay, teleplay, web series, or all other scripts in between, each workshop helps you craft skill sets using concepts and techniques focused on the specific visual art of storytelling.
Bring your commitment, curiosity, compassion, and story concepts and come flip the script! This workshop is held on Zoom.
LINE BREAKS AND BRONX BEATS
Line Breaks and Bronx Beats is another free workshop series instructed by award-winning Bronx-based writer Peggy Robles-Alvarado.
As a literary artist at LB&BB, your objective is to develop pieces and poems, where fellow community artists can provide feedback on your work. LB&BB is encouraged for all writers, regardless of your skill level.
In LB&BB, you will focus on defining featured genres, identifying poets, and poems representing genres, analayzing form, and structure, and providing your interpretations of poems to your peers. This workshop is held on Zoom.
