The Art of the Sentence, the Art of the Paragraph

All Levels | Great writers vary the structure of their sentences, using particular forms to intensify meaning and deepen emotion. This hands-on course in developing virtuoso skills in sentencing and paragraphing is designed for writers interested in revising several short works or a book-in-progress. We’ll scrutinize brilliant sentences and paragraphs and deepen our craft by writing our own. Bring a notebook to write in and the required text: The Writer’s Portable Mentor, Second Edition.
