All Levels | Ever cried over a book? Grinned at a happy ending? If so, you know that skillfully crafted emotional scenes create a true sympathetic response in readers—and you know making a reader feel something is more complicated than writing, “It was sad.” Together, we’ll engage with scenes by writers like James Baldwin and J.K. Rowling, and through writing exercises will learn to charge our own prose with emotional electricity. Come prepared to go deep. . .Also, to make funny faces.
