Stealing from Poetry--Sound and Rhythm for Prose Writers

Description:

Former Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky says that poetry is "a vocal art," and while that’s true, it doesn’t mean that prose can't be that, too. In this workshop we’ll explore the ways in which prose can—and should—steal techniques of sound and rhythm from poetry. Elements such as alliteration, assonance, consonance, pacing, anaphora, stream of consciousness, synecdoche, and onomatopoeia will all be discussed. Bring several tired prose passages to the workshop, and you’ll have the opportunity to try and bring them back to vibrancy and vividness.
