Music as Prompt

We will use songs by Nina Simone, Etta James, Billie Holiday and Alice Coltrane as writing prompts and literary vehicles to create hybrid (cross-genre) writing. We’ll close-listen and close-read lyrics to songs in order to write work echoing blues and jazz themes and styles. Bring headphones.
