Event description
Use music and lyrics to inspire new writing with Fran Harvey

About this event

Using deconstruction and close-focus on instrumental music, analysis of lyrics and their interaction with tone, and a gentle exploration of your own music-based memories, this workshop guides participants through uses of music, lyrics and the emotion and events they inspire to begin worldbuilding and character creation, and build the beginnings of a plot. Designed to help lay a foundation for one overall piece of writing, or to prompt three new pieces, this workshop is open to prose and poetry writers, of any level.

*There are 12 places available on this workshop*

About the writer

Francoise Harvey is a prose and poetry writer, with work appearing in publications including the anthology Best British Short Stories, and magazines Black Static, Interzone, Confingo, TSS, Litro amongst many others. She was awarded a Northern Writers Award in 2017, and worked for five years as production (and occasional guest) editor of one of the UK’s leading writing magazines. She also releases music as independent singer-songwriter Zarahruth, with three Tracks of the Week on BBC Introducing, and airplay on Radio 6. She combines her passion for words and music by exploring the intersection of music and literature in her own writing, both music and prose/poetry, and examining how one so often inspires the other. She also plans and hosts Darlington’s HARK! The Sounds of Stories events. These events celebrate music and the written word, featuring music inspired by literature, along with readings from the texts, and include workshops looking at ways to inform and inspired writing using music.
