L.A. POETS IN PLACE: NEIGHBORHOODS

Friday, April 10 

Featured Poets: Jenise Miller & Christian Lozada


Prompt 1: Think about your neighborhood at this time of shelter-in-place. What sights, sounds, smells, or experiences have you been missing? What new ones are there that weren't before? Write a poem about how this moment has changed your neighborhood.


L.A. POETS IN PLACE: SOUNDS

Friday, April 17 

Featured Poets: Viva Padilla & Vane Lisette


Prompt 2:  Write about the next three sounds you hear and connect them. Describe each sound in as much detail. Is it loud or quiet? Is it continuous or short? What is their relation to each other? Extra: then expand with a drawing if you'd like.
