All levels | Clear and powerful description is the cornerstone of any piece of writing, regardless of genre, though description is one of the most complex modes of compositional rhetoric. How well do you create vivid imagery for your readers? Through lessons on looking at visual art, as well as multigenre writing exercises which we’ll critique together, this course is designed to help you perfect your translation of sensory imagery into verbal imagery.
