Beat Burg Poems and Where to Find Them

When was the last time you encountered poetry in your daily life? It may happens often or maybe once in a while. If you happen to be walking around Downtown Lynchburg this month, keep an eye open for poetry. Literally.

We partnered with local poets and local businesses to spread poetry to everyone for BeatBurg, the Riverviews Artspace way of celebrating National Poetry Month. Whether you are grabbing food or doing some shopping, you’ll find poems at the following locations: 5th St. Grind, Bank of the James,Dublin 3 Coffeehouse, Emerald Stone Grille, Market at Main, MayLynn's Ice Cream Downtown, Mrs. Joy’s Absolutely Fabulous Treats, Oxide Pottery, Riverviews Artspace, Scene 3, Speakertree, TaleTellers Fly Shop, Urbavore, Vector Space, and The Water Dog.

Don’t worry. We made a map.

If that wasn’t inspiring enough, we also teamed up with teachers and educators at R.S. Payne Elementary and Linkhorne Elementary to showcase their students’ poems at Riverviews for the entire month of April.
