Online Class | Language as Sound, Narrative as Score [Sarah Townsend]
VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).
All Levels | This generative cross-genre workshop will consider the use of sound in narration. Participants will listen to the spoken word of Warsan Shire, perform close readings of Theresa Hak Kyung Cha’s novel Dictee, Kate Zambreno’s biography Heroines, and June Jordan’s memoir Soldier. Moving in and out of immersion, free writing, and analysis of text, we will explore the use and impact of lyricism, creative syntax, white space, echo, and refrain. New writing will be shared in the spirit of joyful experimentation.
