In this workshop, students write poems out of the overlappings of poetry and music, among other art forms, and look at the work of Ken Nordine, Woody Guthrie, Lewis Carroll, William Burroughs and others. Special attention is given to hip-hop and rhyming.

Paul Barman is a lyricist whose critically acclaimed albums include Thought Balloon Mushroom Cloud, which has been called “the Finnegans Wake of hip-hop.” He has taught at the Banks Street College of Education and lectured at Columbia and Brown Universities.
