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 concious 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 intellectual and emotional impact. This class is a four-part series, meeting on June 3, 10, 17 & 24.

Anais Salibian has a Master's degree in English literature and a Certification in Secondary Education. She taught high school English and Drama for many years, and has taught writing at Writers & Books and many other organizations. Anais has published works of creative non-fiction and is currently teaching classes on figurative language, writing to heal, memoir, essay, and crafting sentences.

This class is open to writers of all levels. Space is limited and registration is required.
