Career

Pat Pattison Pat Pattison On The Inspiration Behind Creative Writing

Pattison taught Philosophy and Logic at the University of Notre Dame for two years before leaving that position to tour with his band, featherrain. Pattison began teaching at Berklee College of Music in 1975, first as an English instructor, then as the developer of Berklee's philosophy and poetry electives. He offered a course in literary criticism, and added song lyrics to create the course: Analysis of Song Lyrics. That course aided in the development in Berklee College of Music's songwriting major. Pattison has published in Home and Studio Recording Magazine and written two books, The Essential Guide to Rhyming , now in a revised second edition in 2014 http://www.berkleepress.com/catalog/product?product%5fid=11127,and The Essential Guide to Lyric Form and Structure. He published his third book, Writing Better Lyrics in 1995 and an expanded second edition in 2009 http://www.writersdigestshop.com/writing-better-lyrics-ebooks. Pattison's fourth book, Songwriting without Boundaries: A Lyricist's Guide to Finding Your Voice (2012), is an interactive book of four (4) fourteen-day challenges, and focuses on the creative process through Object Writing and Metaphor. In 2013 Pattison wrote and began instruction of a Songwriting Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) through Coursera ((https://www.coursera.org/learn/songwriting-lyrics)). The course has now had over 700,000 registrants in its several offerings. He authored a 2015 piece: Co-Writing:The No-Free Zone for American Songwriter ( http://www.americansongwriter.com/2015/09/songwriter-u-pat-pattison-on-co-writing-the-no-free-zone/. )
