Valley Writers Series Hosts Poet Laureate Kiera Lynn

Kiera Lynn
LBCC student Poet Laureate Kiera Lynn will hold a poetry reading as part of the Valley Writers Series Tuesday, May 13 at 3 p.m. at Linn-Benton Community College’s Library Reading Room, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.

Originally from a little truck-stop town south of Denver, Lynn grew up with the great outdoors as her backdrop.  She headed to Washington, where she roughed it before landing on her feet in Corvallis and finding her niche with LBCC’s Poetry Club.

Lynn plays ukulele and guitar in her band, Little Brother, and hopes to be a slam poet, motivational speaker, teacher, lifelong student, yogi, rockstar, published writer, dancer and revolutionary.

The LBCC Valley Writers Series is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the LBCC English Department, the series exists to connect beginning writers with professional writers and to stimulate creative writing among area students, to enhance literary awareness in our community and to encourage Oregon writers.
