TOTAL LYRIC: POETRY OF THE PRESENT

****Exploding the lyric's relevance in the contemporary moment****

Instructor: Ana Božičević

Put simply, a lyric is a poem that expresses deep personal feelings in the same way as song. Audre Lorde says that "our poems formulate the implications of ourselves, what we feel within and dare make real." If the lyric is a poetry of present tense and our presence, how do we sing more deeply now that the personal is made public, commodified, and more ephemeral than ever? And what can our song make real? In this workshop we will consider the history of the lyric: from ancient fragments to tweets, karaoke, and protest chants. Join us in writing, performance, and poetic engagement across the media as we foster the practice of a radical lyric.

This workshop takes place at Bowery Poetry Club on the following Sundays from 1-3 PM:

October 11th October 18th October 25th November 1st November 8th
