Aspen Black: Poetry & Songwriting Workshop

Calling poets and songwriters of all levels! Do you want to hone your craft? Or are you just beginning and not sure what to do next?  This workshop for adults of all ages will give you exercises in finding engaging ideas, choosing a "voice",  mapping your structure, working within a condensed story arc, blending elements of reality and fiction, designing and smoothing melodic/metrical/and linear progression, strengthening your message and hook, and editing for performance and/or publication.  Please bring a laptop, electronic device, or good 'ol paper and pencil to capture your work. Songwriters, please also bring a personal recording app or device; musical instruments are welcome. Lastly, all participants are encouraged to bring one song or poem you have written (finished or just as much as you have now) to share or perform in an encouraging, constructive, and forgiving creative environment.
