Share the weekend with Caroline Aiken and learn the art of putting your story into song.
The workshop begins Friday at 7:00 pm with a presentation, fun writing assignments and your questions & Caroline’s answers. Saturday will begin with a workshop on rhyming, rhythm, prose-freestyle using a ruthless editing technique. Group games to stimulate inspiration, and one-on-one sessions with Caroline to refine word selection/meaning/direction, to identify strengths and excesses. Saturday evening, students share work (if so desired), collaborate together (again, if so desired) and Caroline shares and dissects her own work and creation processes. Sunday morning we will share assignments started on Friday, and shine a light on the gems unearthed from within over the weekend.
Bring notebook/pens/pencils/recording equipment/instrument to write songs (if so desired, but no instrument or musical ability required or needed).
Shed any fear you have of expression! When you spend a couple of days with Caroline, she will support you in exploring and expanding the creation of your own words, with the end result being the ability to express yourself in the most satisfying of artful and meaningful ways.
The cost of the workshop is $340 for residential attendees; $250 for non-residential attendees.
Lodging, breakfast and lunch are included in the residential cost.
