From the Festival website:
Attendees can expect to learn, to write, to conversate. There will be a continental breakfast served, as well as a hot lunch. Guests will be entertained by a lunch-time reading and will also have the opportunity to share the work they produced at the end-of-the-day Open Mic from 3-4 pm.
As a Festival attendee, you’ll choose two authors (from a group of six) to work with in two-hour morning and afternoon sessions respectively. We understand this will be a difficult decision — and that’s how we wanted it to be!
I don’t know what the other writers have planned, but here is the description of my workshop:
THE MUSIC OF WHAT HAPPENS: EXPLORING SOUNDSCAPE
The music that makes poems memorable springs from the interaction of cadences and the rise and fall in the pitch of syllable sounds. This interaction is called “soundscape”: “An atmosphere or environment created by or with sound.” We’ll explore the impact of soundscape on the reader’s experience and practice some ways of enriching that experience through the fine-tuning of a poem’s soundscape.
