Revise with Magical Words
Tuesday evenings, 6 – 8 p.m.
January 12 – March 9, 2021
All classes on Zoom
Spend cold winter evenings learning new tricks and reexamining old ways to enliven your sentences, tickle your readers, and add vibrant writing to your toolbox.
This fascinating, word-loving class shows you how to boost the success potential of your writing project, whether an article, speech, poem, story, book, play, or advertising, by energizing the language in which it is written. Craft beginnings that hook readers, middles that compel them to stay on the hook, dialogue and descriptions that sizzle and enchant, and endings that leave them eager to read more of your work. Apply techniques that are joyful, exuberant, witty, and wise. Our course will manage to be many things at once: a celebration of language, an examination of its mysteries, and an invitation for you to pick up your pen and join the party. Featuring a literary luminary as a guest speaker.
First class is free to returning members. $25 each class, pay-as-you-go. Textbook Word Magic for Writers by Cindy Rogers (Amazon books). Enroll with Gini Grossenbacher: email firstname.lastname@example.org
