Imagery, Efficiency, and Poetry in a Digital World: 5-week workshop w/ reg e gaines
Poetry has been bombarded by digital brain-dead rotation devices" that offer countless visuals for our viewing enjoyment. These visuals are weakening our ability to create imagery in our poetry. In a sense, the smartphone, tablet, and laptop have become the poets opposition. In this workshop we explore new views on imagery and how to create word pictures and spoken melodies" to be both read and said. We also analyze the efficiency needed when using language to help strengthen both the reader's and the listeners attention span. Performance is todays catchword, but experience has taught me that imagery and efficiency are crucial to brilliant oral interpretation. Pictures and melodies will be key in keeping your audience, whether reader or listener, from reaching for their brain-dead rotation device.

reg e gaines is a two-time Tony Award nominated playwright, Grammy Award nominated lyricist, has published four books of poetry, is editor of the 2015 poetry anthology, A Year in Ink, and scored the PBS documentary Senior Year. Recent projects include: co-creator and director of the musical The 88, director of Connect the Lots, a musical theater summer camp in Camden, New Jersey in 2014, director / creative writing workshop facilitator of Through The Looking Glass, Center Theater Group, Los Angeles California, 2014-2016, and director of Lyricist Fellowship Lab, Teaching Firm of America Charter School, Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn, in winter/spring 2017.
