Workshop Series at The Sou’wester
Radio Muse: Writing Workshop with Meg Weber
Writers find inspiration anywhere. In this workshop, we’ll use song lyrics from singer-songwriters as prompts for writing. We’ll explore how the confluence of words, rhythm, melody, and harmony affect our own words and stories. We will listen to songs from several musicians and read along with the lyrics. Then we’ll write together and share these fledgling bits of story aloud. At the end of our workshop, you’ll walk away with several short pieces of fresh writing and hopefully a new appreciation for how music can influence and inspire your writing. Fiction and nonfiction writers welcome, no experience necessary.
Meg Weber writes to connect with herself and to understand the world around her. She believes in the power of words and in the synergy created by writing in community. Meg holds a master’s degree in counseling psychology and is a therapist in private practice. Her work has been featured at MUTHA Magazine, The Manifest-Station, and The Quotable. She is currently at work on two book-length memoir projects.
