In this workshop, we will look at sound and rhythm in poetry, exploring how music can play a part in the writing process and how poetry and songs commune with each other. We will look at the ways rhythm creates velocity in poems and how using form can create a musicality. We will look at poems that feel driven purely by sound and rhythm and see how syllabics inform prosody. We will engage with generative prompts, and sharing will be on a volunteer basis.
