July 21, 2018: Poetry Manifesting in Music; Music Manifesting in Poetry
Facilitator: Gloria Viglione
While our topic is far-reaching and illimitable, we will attempt a lively exploration through various means. Gloria will suggest a very brief overview of the topic, before attempting to share written and recorded examples of select poet/musician, as well as samples of her own poetry settings, both recorded and live (harp and vocal delivery). The workshop will have an organic quality and will make time for you to experience creating your own marriage of music and poetry. Hope you can join us!
August 18, 2018: Nikki Giovanni, An American Treasure
Facilitator: Michael Escoubas
Giovanni is the author of 14 poetry collections, her latest being A Good Cry. Michael will highlight the essential features of Giovanni's poetry, including her exceptional poetic range, how she uses poetry to transform suffering into joy, and an emphasis on an easy, accessible writing style. Please join us for this enlightening workshop!
