Lyric Writing Workshop: Fairytales & Folklore As Tools

Do your lyrics need a jumpstart? Do you want a collection of new writing exercises and tricks to tuck into your toolbox? As every writer knows, there is nothing more daunting than the dreaded blank page. But what if you didn’t have to start from nothing? What if the strange, beloved stories you’ve known all your life could act as your guide? In this hands-on workshop for lyricists and poets, alike, we’ll be doing a series of generative writing exercises to produce new versions of classic fairytales and folktales, as well as exploring enchanted tropes to help you create wholly original legends of your own. Walk into class with a blank page, and walk out with brand new writing! Open to all experience and skill levels.

GennaRose Nethercott’s book The Lumberjack’s Dove (Ecco/HarperCollins) was selected by Louise Glück as a winner of the National Poetry Series for 2017. She is also the lyricist behind the narrative song collection Modern Ballads, and is a Mass Cultural Council Artist Fellow. A born Vermonter, she has lived in many cities across the United States and Europe, and has been writer-in-residence at the Shakespeare & Company bookstore, Art Farm Nebraska, and The Vermont Studio Center, among others. She tours nationally and internationally composing poems-to-order for strangers on a 1952 Hermes Rocket typewriter.
