In this two-part Members-only workshop, you'll learn about lyric writing, using metaphors, similes, rhythms and rhymes in your lyrics; casting your song like a movie; creating story lines and characters; and more as songwriter Anika Paris (Universal Polygram/Warner Bros.) opens your muse. Participants will be given a songwriting overview, as well as visual and sonic examples to help better understand the craft of lyric writing for specific genres. Also, an "in class" creativity exercise will take place so all writers can sharpen their skills. For the second meeting, homework assignments will be presented for professional feedback and Q&A.
