This Saturday, Nov. 9, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. I will be leading a workshop at the Westport Writers Workshop titled Leveraging Lyricism. In this generative workshop we will focus on poetic passages by prose writers, among them, Hilary Mantel, Justin Torres, Eduardo Galeano and Yasunari Kawabata, to explore how they leverage lyricism within their prose to underscore moments of emotional or thematic resonance. We will brainstorm ways to do the same in our own prose projects. But the bulk of the workshop will focus on strategies and generative prompts designed to access the hidden lyricism within each participant’s writing voice.
