Poetry Workshop at St. Peter Armenian Church

For National Poetry Month —the month of April— In His Shoes will be offering poetry workshops led by Lory Bedikian for Seniors and Teens! The worskhops will take place at the St. Peter Armenian Church and Youth Ministries Center in Glendale, California.
If you are a senior or teen, this is an opportunity to come and express yourself. There is no experience necessary and all are welcome. You don't have to know anything about poetry to attend or participate! You may write in any language you're most comfortable with, although workshops will generally be in English. (Lory speaks Armenian, so if need be, the workshops can be bilingual).
If you aren't a senior or teen, please consider accompanying or encouraging a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, younger brother, sister or any loved one or community member you know who would enjoy this type of event. It is such a wonderful gesture or gift to let our seniors and teens know that we value their voices and that their creative pursuits matter!
Workshops are free. Two senior workshops will take place in the daytime while two teen workshops are scheduled after school. Please click on the links to open the flyers for details:Seniors Poetry Workshop and Teen Poetry Workshop.  This information is also available on the In His Shoes calendar.
Whether you are attending the senior workshops or teen workshops, you are encouraged to attend both days so that you can try some of the at-home writing exercises Lory will be giving you.
Thank you and hope to see you there! Please feel free to pass this along to any one you know who may be interested.
For more information and/or to reserve your space, please contact Lory Bedikian directly at LBediki@aol.com.
