The Mystery of Voice*

$65.00 Members
$75.00 Non-members

This seminar will explore the making of voice in different craft realms (diction, subject, music, grammatical stance), hoping to approach that mysterious achievement, a writer’s own, fully recognizable voice, replete with presence. We’ll look at some individual poems and at the work of a few distinctive poets. This seminar will be looking at the experience of voice in poetry, but writers working in other genres are welcome to attend. Participants are encouraged to bring one brief example of their own choosing—the opening sentence or first lines of a work in which they hear an inhabiting, individual, singular speaker.

 *This class is a large seminar (for up to 30 people).
