The lyric essay is one of the most exciting and playful of all writing forms, but it can be hard to pin down. A blend of objective information and subjective perceptions, it’s a shape-shifter for sure. Thoughts and narratives are braided or collaged together using a variety of structures or time frames. Much of the effect—and the joy of creating it—comes from the poetical use of language. The lyric essay is not traditional exposition, but when done right, it’s truer than truth.

This three-hour workshop will be your introduction. We’ll spend some time just getting acquainted with and analyzing some beautiful examples of this unique literary animal. Then, get ready to give it a try! Come prepared with three objects which are meaningful to you. We will turn them into writing prompts and then turn you loose with a menu of creative choices.

Try your hand a lyric essay and you’ll be amazed to find a whole new dimension, a whole new depth, in your writing. There’s no turning back once you set out to find the elusive lyric essay…
