The Written and Then Spoken Word [Gary Lilley] — CANCELLED
All Levels | Should all poems be read aloud? Yes, indeed. Creating that credible voice — a poem that comes alive on the page as well from the mouth — is the goal of this workshop. Using innovated prompts, participants in this class will generate a set of first drafts. We will close-read works from selected poets and writers to create poems that reflect the music, the language and rhythms, and the concerns, of a contemporary American life. Writing in the now, we will shape creative pieces with authority that will ring true on the page and in the ear.
