On Sound: What Poets Can Learn from Music*

$65.00 Members
$75.00 Non-members

In this seminar, we’ll use samples of songs and music videos—spirituals and gospel, and the rap songs that have sampled spirituals and gospel—to try and arrive at that tricky-to-articulate magic moment in art: the big reveal. We’ll examine the trick of pace, the landscape of silence, and percussive elements of voice, all in service of suggesting a big moment only to later reveal an even bigger moment in your work. Prose writers are also welcome to attend.

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