Crafting the Lyric Essay
Join essayist Randon Billings Noble for an in-depth exploration of the lyric essay.  What makes an essay “lyric”?  What are the benefits of using imagery and intuition to explore a line of thought instead of narrative and exposition?  In this workshop we'll read short examples, look at some of the myriad forms a lyric essay can take, consider the ways form can intensify content, and do some writing. Participants will leave with the start of a lyric essay as well as a list of places to read and publish them.
