Sentences: Shape, Sound, Substance

Sentences: Shape, Sound, Substance

from 50.00

Sentences help us control, shape, color language: they are the muscle of writing. In this class, we will look at a range of sentences-- complex, compound, simple-- and consider the ways that syntax shapes and creates meaning. We will also consider what happens when grammar falls, intentionally, apart, and, how in poetry, the line can interrupt, and contradict, how the sentence does it work. This class is designed for writers of all genres as we all share sentences.
