About the Workshop

Looking to music as a guiding light, this workshop will take risks and open creative doors that either elevate existing forms, or create new ones, influenced by our mixtape. Workshop participants will end each class with a draft and study forms such as: The Nines, Haibun, The Bop, Epistolary, The Duplex, Persona, Documentary, Memoir Poetry and The Eintou.
