46. Word Sounds: Homophonic Translation for Poetry or Prose
Writers Retreat
Steven Heighton

 

In poetry, as in literary prose, the sounds and rhythms of words are as important as their meanings. Steven Heighton introduces an exhilarating exercise that frees participants to forget meanings, personal intentions, and emotions and, instead, experiment with sound. The exercise is both challenging and enjoyable. The results are always remarkable. Liberated from the limitations of ego experience, many participants find their exercise "translation" to be among the most interesting things they've ever written.
Limited enrolment.
