A lot of people write good sentences, but few write consistently great ones. Members of this select club tend to be writers of some notoriety. The purpose of this workshop is to inch participants a little closer to this goal. We’ll break down a broad selection of great sentences in an attempt to get to the bottom of what makes them work; then, just to see what happens, we’ll apply what we’ve learned to some of our own prose. This workshop is open to writers of fiction and nonfiction. Poets are welcome to attend as well. Participants should bring a page or two of their own writing that they feel is good, but not perfect.
