Close observation, musical language, deep feeling and vivid image are tools of powerful, truth-telling songwriting. Poets have long explored these aspects of writing and embodied their discoveries in language. Songwriters can draw both inspiration and technical knowledge from poetry. 

We'll look at great poems, poets and poetic devices and explore what we can use in songwriting. 

For songwriters of all levels of experience.
