This workshop presents ways to exercise artful control of the building blocks of good writing. “Each sentence . . . has a distinct shape, and it comes with something that makes it move forward or stay still — whether a sail, a motor or a pair of oars,” writes journalist Constance Hale, comparing sentences to boats. This craft session will provide exercises in reading and writing good sentences with an eye toward editing your own work so that it holds readers’ attention and fulfills your purpose. You will have practice determining what kinds of sentences to create so that you won’t build a dinghy when you need a sailboat. This workshop is not a grammar review.
