VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).
All it takes to write lyrics for a song is a few magic syllables for your chorus, which serves as key to open the treasure box of resonant details that build your verses. We will brood on some sweet anguish in your life, hatch a chorus line, sweep together details of sensation and setting, and let the verses fly. No musical experience necessary. We will focus on the heart of the song, the lyrics that tell your story of difficult joy. This class includes a lunch break.
Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.
If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.
If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.
If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
