Online Class | For the Love of Metaphor [Joe Ponepinto]
VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).
All Levels | Some claim that, in an increasingly literal world, metaphor in fiction is a lost art. Do we still need it? The answer is yes! Metaphors foster connections with readers by appealing to their innate sense of wonder about themselves and the world around them. This class will consider examples from classic and modern fiction and explore different levels of metaphor, including simile, metaphorical characters, and allegory. Then we’ll discuss how to infuse these concepts into our writing.
