Event Type

This workshop will begin with two BIPOC writers discussing the overt and covert intertextual links between poetry (and by extension, written language) as a form of music, and music (and by extension, all sound) as a form of poetry. The panelists will detail how their individual works incorporate, illustrate, explore, and/or expand upon sound and musicality as a distinct (and often, mostly POC) form of language that works at cross-purposes to what is commonly considered to be “lyric.” Additionally, in hopes of encouraging lively audience participation and discussion in the form of a post-panel Q&A, we will end our panel with brief remarks and observations on the influence of various musical genres on contemporary poetic forms. There will also be time set aside for writing exercises based upon the previous discussion and readings.
