Wordcraft: Exercises in Creative Writing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Primarily for poets, but also for fiction writers, this five week Tuesday evening course will focus on improving our use of language - writing from the five senses, as well as using precise concrete word, active verbs, and evocative metaphors and similes. Each session will focus for 1 1/2 hours on a particular facet of word usage, with discussion of information and examples, as well as occasional in-class exercises. The last hour will involve constructive workshopping of student submissions. We will not be concerned with n any specific form or genre, but rather with improving our word choice, so that our writing is more effective, original and engaging. Limited to 8.
