Master Class with Robert Pinsky: Leading with Music
Jun 8, 2019 | 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Saturday & Sunday
This workshop will encourage new work, with an emphasis on ways that the melodies of sentences, the harmonies of consonant and vowel, and the variations of rhythm can bring out feelings and ideas that conscious, methodical intention may not reach.
At the beginning of our first session, I’ll ask each student to bring one copy of a recently-written poem, for reading aloud to the group—not printed out or photocopied. (That will come later.)
I’ll recommend my little book The Sounds of Poetry and my anthology Essential Pleasures. And the videos at www.favoritepoem.org.
Saturday, June 8, 2 – 6pm
Sunday, June 9, 12 – 4pm
A poet, translator, critic, and former U.S. Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky is the author and editor of numerous collections of poetry and criticism. He is a professor of English and creative writing in the graduate writing program at Boston University.
