This week-long adult workshop meets August 14th-18th at The Cabin, 9:30am-12:30pm Monday-Friday
The lyric is the predominate poetic mode of our time, but it has a bigger influence in literature than just poetry. In this workshop, we will explore the lyric mode in a number of genres, including poetry, fiction, memoir, essay, and yes, song. While focusing on the lyrical “I”—how it works in different genres and our own writing—we will also discuss other aspects and tools of the creative writer, including figurative language, imagery, and form.
215 for non-members, 180 for members. Call 331-8000 to become a member and receive member pricing on all workshops!
