Beautiful Facts

Readers love to learn—and not only about "what happens next" but also about science, history, medicine, and society. How can writers meet this need while maintaining a commitment to beautiful sentences? How can we sculpt context passages—clause-, sentence-, or paragraph-length—to match the impact of scene or the lyricism of reflection? Participants will read within the field of the literary essay, receive weekly prompts, and have the opportunity to share writing. Suitable for all whose writing includes information.
