SECTION III: Due to great interest in this class, we’ve opened up a third section on 4/3 – registration is open now.

We’ll examine sentences from an array of authors and genres, analyzing how form and content align. We’ll look at structure (e.g. a “pocket” that hides or safeguards and a “u-turn” that surprises or subverts), diction (coinage, descriptions, word shifts), sound (matched sounds, onomatopoeia, repetition), and what obeying — or breaking! — grammar rules adds to a sentence. Experiment with these techniques by writing new sentences or revising old ones, then share the results with the class.

Hugo House will only process refund requests that are submitted 5 business days or more before the class start date.

Administrative fees apply. Please see our full refund policy here.

Class sessions may be recorded if a session falls on a holiday, or if a student has access needs. Class recordings are not guaranteed.

We do not tolerate racist, sexist, homophobic, ableist, transphobic or any other oppressive behaviors, regardless of who commits them. Please check out our full community guidelines by clicking here. If an instance of community guidelines are violated and not resolved within the classroom, students may let us know by filling out the student incident report.

Classes may be cancelled if less than 5 students are enrolled within 10 days before the class start date. If for any reason Hugo House needs to cancel a class, students can choose between a full credit or full refund.
