Beg, Borrow, and Steal [Miranda Weiss]
All Levels | Writers are panhandlers, leeches, and thieves. We snitch words from here and there, keep our eyes on the ground until a gleaming one gets dropped, and lift them from one world to use in another. There are many ways to find words to enrich our writing and to use them outside the contexts in which we found them. During this workshop, we’ll explore ways to borrow and steal words from places you might not expect, and learn techniques to make them our own.
