Wordcraft   NEW!

"...when words are tuned to their highest ability…it is possible to feel…language clicking into place." –Mark Doty, THE ART OF DESCRIPTION

Whether you’re a beginning or an advanced writer, this class will bring you back to the foundation of craft—the specific words that make up your paragraphs and stanzas. Wake up your descriptions through enhanced attention. Discover unexpected images through “meaning networks.” Revitalize the familiar by removing its usual scaffolding. The result will be work that is robust and vibrant—as much a pleasure to read as it is to create. All writing, from fiction to poetry to song lyrics, is welcome, as is that idea that’s just beginning to percolate. Class time includes lecture, discussion, writing, and critique.

Required text: The Art of Description: World into Word by Mark Doty, ISBN-13: 978-1555975630.
