The Songbird Meets the Storyteller: Channeling the Lyrical Narrative Within

from 30.00

In this workshop, we will examine lyric and narrative poems and explore how we can use both to write and revise poems that sing and tell the stories that construct our lives. We will look at the graceful interplay between narrative elements (imagination, setting, characters, conflict, etc) and lyric element (meter, alliteration, assonance, rhythm, form, etc) in what I like to call lyric-narrative poems by Ross Gay, Judy Jordan, Robert Wrigley, Christine Kitano, and others, in order to to better fashion our own poems that readers can relate to and sing—at the same time. This workshop will be ideal for all levels of experience as it will focus on the generation of new poems as well as the workshopping and revision of previously written works that are not yet fully "ringing the bell."
