An alternative to a writing workshop where participants critique each other's writing, this course is a practicum focusing on sentence-level improvement. Using a method the co-instructors developed called "the sentence-composing approach," participants practice sentence strategies used by authors ranging from J. R. R. Tolkien to J. K. Rowling, to learn how to apply those same tools to their own writing. In building better sentences, participants learn to do what successful authors do, and will leave each session with sentence-building tools applicable to virtually any kind of writing: academic, business, literary, or personal.
