Strong Sentences, Strong Writing

with Kim Suhr 

January 16, 2021
9:30 – 11 am (CT)
On Zoom

When writing prose, we tend to focus on big picture issues: Is it clear? Does it flow? What comes next? Every bit as important, though, is what happens at the sentence level: How does the structure of the sentence affect its mood? How does changing the word in the subject position change the emphasis of the entire sentence? How does sentence length affect pacing? Truth is, paying attention to these micro-level questions contributes much to that all-important big picture.

In this workshop, we will put sentences under a microscope and practice making them work harder for us in our writing. No need to be a grammar aficionado, though tolerance of the instructor’s grammar wonkiness will be appreciated!
