Bob Dylan as Literature and Inspiration

This spring, I’ll be teaching a new writing class, Bob Dylan As Literature and Inspiration, at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education on Brattle Street in Harvard Square. Our class beings on April 5th, 2023 and will take place over 8 Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30.

Bob Dylan is not just one of the great American songwriters, he’s an eminent storyteller. From the fairy-tale simplicity of “Girl from the North Country” to the surrealist panorama of “Subterranean Homesick Blues” to the autobiographical narrative of “Sara,” Dylan’s songs have transported listeners to myriad worlds, both real and imagined. This literature and writing class will explore those worlds through creative writing exercises and discussion. We’ll examine the literary forms of surrealist poetry, lyrical ballads, and protest songs and learn how to apply these techniques to our own writing.

You can register for Bob Dylan as Literature and Inspiration at CCAE’s website.

Making Time to Write

At Arlington Community Education, I’ll be teaching Making Time to Write. Life can get in the way of your writing practice, so it is important to find a way to sustain your passion for writing. Discover how to ensure that writing no longer feels like an add-on to your life, but rather an embedded practice. Learn how to remove barriers to writing, such as your inner critic, while rediscovering why you love to write. Through writing prompts both reflective and creative, you will get back into the practice of writing and become armed with strategies to fight against blank page anxiety and excuses. Class is at Arlington High School,
Tuesdays, Apr 25 – May 30, 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
