My knowledge and skills have grown immensely through the support and guidance of the fabulous staff!
Scott Guy has in-depth knowledge of forms, rhyme, and scansion in poetry and the knowledge of how to adapt this to create excellent prosody in writing lyrics for musicals. He’s also written the lyrics to many musicals and has a depth of practical experience in collaborating with musicians. I’ve benefited personally from his critiques.
At the risk of sounding sentimental, I specifically want to thank you for the gift of your lyric labs. I’ve been a poet all my life, but I feel like – at long last – the lab is giving me the skills and understanding to go beyond the poetic gifts I was born with and to build on those gifts with insight and intention. And what a difference that’s going to make to my efforts! So thank, you, thank you, thank you!!
