Unfolding Pleasure: The Sentence Experience
"Why should a sequence of words be anything but a pleasure?" Gertrude Stein asks. Good grammar alone does not guarantee great sentences, but conscious choices in diction, syntax and structure do. A sentence is an unfolding experience for the reader, each word producing an effect. This class will teach you how to think about constructing sentences so that they have both an intellectural and emotional impact. Open to writers of all levels. Space is limited and registration is required.
