Writing Great Sentences Section II [Geraldine Woods]

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.
