Rhyme and Reason’, a masterclass for poets of page and stage was the first event to be hosted by the BVI Lit Fest in its Poetry Workshop which began on November 2. Virgin Islands Poet Laureate, Dr. Richard Georges conducted the session and focused on the use of rhyme in the written word from Shakespeare to Kendrick Lamar. The workshop is part of a series for writers that will equip attendees with the fundamentals and techniques of different writing styles as well as publishing of non-fictional pieces.

"The BVI Literary Festival is a coming together of writers, poets, publishers, booksellers and book lovers to celebrate the literary arts through workshops, readings and more. The BVI Literary Festival is a subsidiary body of the Department of Culture."
