About this program
Jazz and The Tempest explores the creation of These Are Not the Words, a novel in poetry and prose. Working with examples from the novel, we’ll explore how sound and rhythm can reflect character and pace. As we dig deeper, we will look at how the novel’s difficult themes of addiction and mental health were presented through poetry. The presentation allows for a Q & A and discussion of writing and theme.
Equipment And Other Requirements: A projector compatible with a MAC or a computer for a memory stick.
