Harness the power of music in your writing! Join author Leah Velez in this workshop and discover how you can use your favorite song to structure your own story. Take this as a stand-alone class or as part of our Winter Warmup Series!
About this Workshop: What is it that makes music so memorable, and so emotionally resonant? And how can we harness that power in the written medium? Let’s talk about it! In this one day class, we will analyze a piece of music and a story that uses that structure, together. Then… bring in your favorite song, and we’ll dissect it for patterns, and analyze its effectiveness, and use it as a model for your own story! You’ll leave with a blueprint you can use.
