First-rate writers use all the sentence forms — not at random, but to carry particular meanings or emotions. This course is for those interested in revising across several short works or across a book-in-progress. We’ll scrutinize brilliant sentences and paragraphs and write or revise our own. We’ll shape our sentences to intensify their content, perhaps using a shattered sentence (a fragment) to hold a shattering experience, or a slow, lazy sentence to hold a slow, lazy experience. We’ll also explore techniques for gathering language that is original, true to our own vision, and sonorous.
