May 1st-May 22nd
Songs & Soundtracks
Rainbow Rowell created playlists for each of her characters while writing Eleanor & Park. Memoirist Rob Sheffield--author of Love is a Mix Tape and Talking to Girls About Duran Duran--has built his entire writing career on the music of his life.
In this 4-week workshop, we'll look at how writers of all genres--poetry, fiction, and nonfiction--use music as inspiration. Drawing from our own experience, we'll explore how a soundtrack, a playlist, or a single song can be the muse for an entire short story, poem, or personal essay.
Open to all levels and all genres.
Ages 13 and up. Teen Studio will continue on weekday afternoons over the summer. .
