Writing and revising can sometimes feel like assembling a jigsaw puzzle in the dark. Style and Substance, an eight-week course for working writers of all levels, will help shine a light on the process. Through engaging lesson plans, exercises, and focused group work, we will explore style and craft from a larger, structural perspective as well as at the paragraph and sentence level. Although the class draws from academic research on how readers read and interpret writing, it swaps a theory-heavy approach for real tools that you can use right away.
At the end of eight weeks, your writing will be more vigorous and confident. You’ll be able to indentify problems in your work, and know how to revise more effectively. You’ll also get tons of inspiration, exercises, and encouragement to keep you going long after the class is done!
