Sentences ARE the Story

All Levels | There’s no such thing as a “good-enough sentence.” Sentences not crafted to tell a particular story or essay just get in the way. Learn to build sentences that grip the reader, evoke tone, deepen mood, reveal character, advance plot, and help a narrative breathe. We’ll examine how sentence length, structure, rhythm, and variation convey meaning. Writing exercises will be designed to play with and master the sentence. Bring a sample of your prose to analyze and revise, and get ready to fall in love with the sentence.
