Voices of Michigan Poets & Friends LIVE on Zoom
Celebrate National Poetry Month and Hear the Voices of Michigan Poets -- and friends--Live during our special Zoom Event! Hear poetry, discuss poetry and meet writers -- and learn how poets create and how you can too. Visit with a particular poet, or just enjoy the experience!
Hosted by Lansing's Poet Laureate Dr. Laura Apol. Laura is an associate professor of literacy, literature and creative writing in the MSU College of Education. Attending Poets announced mid-April.
Tips for attending:
- After a presentation by the poet, there will be time for Q&A. We encourage you to come up with a question to ask about their poem, writing process, or life as an poet! You will be able to type this in the chat box or unmute and ask.
- We ask that participants stay muted for the majority of the program so that everyone can hear the presentation, however we welcome you to keep your camera on so that our poets can see the participants.
- It is helpful if you can change your Zoom display name to the first name(s) of those attending, to help us better interact with you. To do this once you are in the Zoom session, click/tap on "Participants," find your name in the list, and click/tap on rename.
