Crash Course: Poetics for the Prose Writer

Regular price $ 185.00

Wish your writing would float like music into the fabric of your readers’ minds? Want to catch an editor’s eye? This 6-hour crash course covers the keys to setting a tune to your prose. Exercises include mastering the rhythms of the English language, scintillating sibilance, catchy cacophonies, repetition, rhyme — all alliteration — and more. With one sound, a blue sound, two sounds — four! — your memoir, novel, or story will soar. The only requirement is a willingness to have fun with words. 

Lunch is included.

Class limit of 12.
