About this Event

The Lyons Arts and Humanities Commission is partnering with the Lyons Regional Library in April to celebrate National Poetry Month with a workshop led by Colorado poet Lucy Simpson. The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, April 24, from 9 to 11 a.m.

Simpson will guide participants in a virtual poetry workshop that is sure to inspire creativity and get you putting those poems on paper. The workshop is designed in part to be a generative workshop to inspire poems for the LAHC Poetry in Public Places Contest, but that will not be the only focus. The focus will be to create poems, have fun, and celebrate National Poetry Month. The workshop is geared to adults but it is family friendly.

Zoom link will be sent to all participants the day before the event.

To learn more about the Lyons Poetry in Public Places Contest and the theme “Finding joy and beauty in Lyons” see the contest details at the Town of Lyons webpage.

Poet Lucy Simpson is wife of one and mother to two children. She and her family live in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Her work has appeared in Gargoyle, WordWrights, and Natural Bridge, among other publications. Matchstick & Bramble, her first chapbook, is available from The Broadkill Press. As a child she was terrified of sunflowers, often remarking, “A flower of that size is possibly carnivorous.” Currently, she loves huge, alien-world-looking, flowers.
