Taylor Swift is the teen love laureate, the genius who penned your favorite heartbreak songs, and the storyteller behind the recent release Folklore. How does Swift turn specific experiences into songs so relatable you feel like she’s reading your mind? Join us as we use some of Swift’s best lyrics as prompts and apply her songwriting techniques to our own writing. Be inspired by the way she crafts characters, memorializes moments, fits plots into choruses, and turns a scarf into a symbol for heartache. This class is open to all writers (and Swifities) … Ready For It?
