The Pleasures & Perils of Making Filk

Class first taught at Bardic Skirmishes in January 2022. (With apologies to George Carlin: How to filk, who to filk, when to filk, why to filk, and how to feel after you filk.)

(See also my post on this subject from a few years back, which heavily informed the class.)

Class description: Exploration of writing and sharing “filks” (new lyrics to an existing, often modern, tune). This is a subset of songwriting skills that can bring laughter and smiles, but it is not appropriate for every venue or situation.
