Hook, Line & Sinker: Editing for Prose Writers [Beth Slattery]
This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
Introductory | Often writers get so caught up in telling stories that they forget to look at the structural soundness of individual sentences. In this course, we will investigate how a sentence hums, the tautness of a line, and the shape of a paragraph. Weekly workshops of a work-in-progress will focus on micro-level editing and critique (i.e., how something is being said instead of what is being said). Students can expect significant instructor feedback on their polished 10-15 page submission.
