Jackbox Games: Fibbage 2

Join us (virtually) to play a few games of Fibbage 2! Fibbage is the lying, bluffing, fib-till-you-win multiplayer trivia party game from the makers of YOU DON'T KNOW JACK! Play with 2-8 players! Fool your friends with your lies, avoid theirs, and find the (usually outrageous) truth. And get this: your phone or tablet is your controller!

We will play via Zoom and the jackbox.tv website. Two screens are recommended - one to see the game and one to act as a controller. We find it works best with a computer for viewing the game and zooming and a phone or tablet for a controller. 

1. Open Zoom on your primary screen.

Virtual Poetry Workshop: Writing the Land with Dr. Laura Apol, Lansing’s Poet Laureate

Stretch your creativity in this two-part poetry workshop, led by Lansing’s current Poet Laureate, Dr. Laura Apol. Laura is an associate professor of literacy, literature and creative writing in the MSU College of Education. Laura feels “Poems are about community—So much of a place, and people in a place, can be expressed and understood through poetry.”

In this workshop, participants will look at models of "place" poetry in the first week, with some writing done in the workshop and a prompt to take home; the second meeting will have additional in-session writing, with an opportunity to share writing resulting from the take-home prompt from the previous session. Please Note: This is the same workshop program presented in a face-to-face workshop last year. If a participant took the program last year, they should NOT take it this time. Since workshop sessions build on one another, participants are requested to commit to both workshops when they register. Time Change for the second workshop: The second workshop on February 20 takes place from 3-4:30 pm. Age group: Older teens and adults. 

Please register by Feb.8, using the form available, below. A Zoom link will be sent to all registrants to join us at the Zoom Meeting.

Zoom has helpful video tutorials about how to connect   Other important meeting controls (like mute, camera,etc.)

Virtual Poetry Workshop: Writing the Land with Dr. Laura Apol, Lansing’s Poet Laureate

Stretch your creativity in this two-part poetry workshop, led by Lansing’s current Poet Laureate,Dr. Laura Apol. Laura is an associate professor of literacy, literature and creative writing in the MSU College of Education. Laura feels “Poems are about community—So much of a place, and people in a place, can be expressed and understood through poetry.”

In this workshop, participants will look at models of "place" poetry in the first week, with some writing done in the workshop and a prompt to take home; the second meeting will have additional in-session writing, with an opportunity to share writing resulting from the take-home prompt from the previous session. Please Note: This is the same workshop program presented in a face-to-face workshop last year. If a participant took the program last year, they should NOT take it this time. Since workshop sessions build on one another, participants are requested to commit to both workshops when they register. Time Change for the second workshop: The second workshop on February 20 takes place from 3-4:30 pmAge group: Older teens and adults. 

Please register by Feb. 8, using the form that appears on the February 13 event listing. A Zoom link will be sent to all registrants to join us at the Zoom Meeting.

Zoom has helpful video tutorials about how to connect

Other important meeting controls (like mute, camera,etc.)

Jackbox Games: Guesspionage

Join us (virtually) to play a few games of Guesspionage by Jackbox Games. Guesspionage tests your knowledge of the human condition as you guess how real people responded to basic poll questions like, “What percentage of people have mistaken mannequins for real people?” and “What percentage of adults have played Truth or Dare after turning 30?”

We will play via Zoom and the jackbox.tv website. Two screens are recommended - one to see the game and one to act as a controller. We find it works best with a computer for viewing the game and zooming and a phone or tablet for a controller. 

1. Open Zoom on your primary screen.
