In this class, we'll take an interactive and improvisational approach to writing song lyrics and investigate the art and craft of song lyric writing. Whether you play an instrument or not you'll learn how songs work and how to awaken and harness your creative energy. We'll write in groups and individually, study how form and poetic technique affect the way a song feels, and learn methods for opening up and completing a creative process. Students should expect to write at least one complete song lyric during the class.
