In a Different Voice: Remixing Your Prose

Looking to stretch the boundaries of your voice on the page? We’ll take a piece of our own prose and “remix” it in the style of various classical and contemporary masters. From the elegance of a Virginia Woolf sentence to the gut punch of humor found in a George Saunders line, you’ll rework your writing to emulate master stylists at the sentence level, stretching and honing your prose style as a result. We’re talking punctuation. We’re talking clauses. We’re talking where to break your paragraphs. This is the real work of finding and crafting your writer-voice. This work is as sexy as it gets.

Please note: This is a three session class. The dates and times are as follows: Sunday, March 8, 1-4 p.m.; Tuesday, March 10, 6-9 p.m.; and Thursday, March 12, 6-9 p.m.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
