AWP Conference 2018: Tampa, FL

Writing at the Crossroads: Exploring the Interface Between Music and Literature. (John Edgar, Rob Spillman, Cyrus Cassells, Melissa Stephenson, Shayla Lawson)

Songs and stories, symphonies and poems, the echo of a nearly forgotten tune on the edge of a memory— music often animates, in subtle and direct ways, the written word.  Here, authors from across genres discuss dealing with the difficult connections at play between the page and ear, when music is a not-so-silent character in their work.
