What a Powerful Sentence Looks Like
In this workshop, we will discuss the construction of unforgettable sentences. Using examples from Toni Morrison, Garth Greenwell, and many others, we will look at how to put together a single thought, a string of thoughts, or in some cases an entire constellation of ideas and emotions in the space between two periods. We will then generate our own sentences to share in the second half of the class. Instructor's personal feedback provided on up to 3,000 words. Submission of work is optional.
