Adding Bling to Your Prose


Course description

Most writing classes teach you how to write efficient, clear sentences and place them in coherent paragraphs, organized to develop a central point. It’s a good place to begin, but what if you want to turn your writing into a truly enjoyable experience for the reader?

You can’t practice any craft without material, and you are a writer so when you’re awake you are on the job. You know this, because you carry a notebook and a pen. Every time someone says something memorable, catchy, confusing, funny, glib or wildly whacky, you write it down along with where and when you heard it and a description of the person you’re stealing it from. You are a spy in the service of the craft, capturing the English Idiom of your era in your place and time.

Each time you write, you write consciously, practicing specific techniques you will learn in this course in order to make your prose contemporary, surprising, punchy and rhythmical.
