National Poetry Month Celebration
The primary objective of Lyrikal Storm is to hone poetry writing and spoken word skills through workshops, participation in poetry readings, and competition. Five core principals guide Lyrikal Storm: (1) Knowledge is essential. (2) Community/global awareness and involvement is a civic duty. (3) Strive for sophistication, mediocrity is not an option. (4) Critical thinking and speaking is key to mobility. (5) Once a member, always a member. Currently, Lyrikal Storm is scheduled to perform at the Remembrance Foundation Harlem Renaissance Festival and compete in two slam festivals: Louder Than A Bomb DMV and Brave New Voices.
