What We Really Mean to Say: Utilizing Poetic Techniques in Prose
When we attend to language, we not only say what it is we’re after in more vivid ways, but we very often find ways to say something we didn’t even know we could say—that is, we discover what it is we really mean to say. In this craft workshop, we will read selections from prose writers utilizing poetic techniques, identify four ways to attend to language, and practice using these techniques in our own writing.
