A Thousand Sides to Every Story: A Musical Look at Point of View, Voice and Tone

from 50.00

In this workshop, we will use a range of pop songs as a jumping off point for exploration of point of view, voice and tone, both as craft elements and as crucial points to contemplate when it comes to deep social issues in our writing: dominant narratives, Otherized voices, and cultural context. Please come ready to groove to a lot of tunes and do a little writing.
