Virtual Poet's Lounge

April 22






Are you ready to turn your DEEPEST and DARKEST confessions into art? Join Beach Pride Events for a poetry workshop and open mic session with poet, writer, and CSULB alumna, Jessi Jarrin.

Jessi Jarrin is dedicated to creating an environment for students to grieve and celebrate their stories. She will begin the event with a writing workshop, guiding students through the art of self-expression and self-reflection. Later, students are given the opportunity to share poetry, songs, rap, short stories, and other forms of free-spoken words in a small and intimate environment.

This event is open to experienced poets, new poets, and any students looking for a space to share the highs and lows of quarantine. Students are also encouraged to attend the workshop and support the open mic, even if they choose not to perform.
All are Welcome!
