Tracing Melody and Rhythm in Writing - SS2024

Wednesday, June 5, 2024 10:00to11:30
Tracing Melody and Rhythm in Writing - SS2024

Have you ever noticed how a good paper or article can sing to you as you read it? As a writer, awareness of the musical aspects of a text may help you “compose” writing that flows well.

Participate in this workshop and you will:

  • Identify the use of melody and rhythm in writing
  • Understand how to use punctuation to create silence or pausing

Please have ready a 1-2 page excerpt of a current writing project to use as practice material. 

This workshop is led by Farhan Ahmed, a musician and writer with a Master’s in Public Policy. Prior to moving to Montreal, Farhan worked as a journalist analyzing foreign policy and as a Market Experience Lead for Google in Asia.

The workshop will be offered online on Wednesday, June 5, 10:00 to 11:30 am. Registrants will receive the workshop link in a confirmation email.
