Art of the Sentence [Waverly Fitzgerald]
Introductory/Intermediate. Using Priscilla Long’s The Writer’s Portable Mentor as our textbook, we’ll practice writing sentence fragments, list sentences, compound sentences, simple sentences, complex sentences, and sentences that enact their meaning—always working on sentences you can use in your current writing project. We’ll be inspired by examples from many authors, including your favorites. We will pay close attention to sound and rhythm as well, looking at the vowel scale and rhetorical devices for clues about how to create virtuoso sentences.
