Imagery & Lyricism - June 5th & 12th 5-7PM
Imagery and Lyricism
“She acts like summer and walks like rain.” ~ train
In this two-part workshop, we’ll learn how to use metaphor and language to bring feeling to our work (and our readers). Day 1 will consist writing exercises and discussion about imagistic language and how to effectively infuse your writing with a sense of the lyric. We’ll apply the principles we’ve learned to create an artifact (piece of writing), meet with Mike or Irene one-on-one during the week for evaluation, and present our work to our peers on Day 2, followed by further discussion.
