Great writers vary the structure of their sentences, using particular forms to intensify meaning and deepen emotion. This hands-on course in developing virtuoso skill 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.
