This generative writing session is dedicated to exploring the interface between sound and the page. The workshop offers a variety of prompts aimed towards experimenting with the sound of words, volumizing the formal possibilities of minute textual or sonic units. The session is interactive and will also explore the power of sound recording technologies to take writing in new directions. Working with an understanding of writing as a broad category that extends into other media, we’ll run activities that equip participants with some basic skills for using digital recording and editing as part of their writing practice. We’ll each make sound recordings, and demonstrate, through collages of this material, how software can be used to manipulate and recontextualise aspects of our written work. Ideally, the session will be a free-flowing mix of writing workshop, skill-share and group discussion.
