Reading Like a Writer [Joe Ponepinto]
All Levels | Writers are often advised to read as much as possible. This class takes the concept further to turn the reading process into a learning tool. Through readings, exercises, and discussion, students will learn to identify the techniques of accomplished writers and how to apply them to their own work. Writing from several genres will be covered, including short stories, essays, and novel excerpts by writers dating from the early 20th century, with an emphasis on contemporary works.
