The Perfect Sentence

All Levels. These are the sentences we underline. The lines that move us. The words that make us say, “I wish I could write a sentence like that.” In this course, we’ll study sentences both in and outside of the context of larger works. We’ll examine their structure, study their commas, and learn from their precision. Students will then take what they learn from these sentences and apply it to their own work.
