Event Details

Roy Peter Clark teaches writing at the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida.  He is the author of many books on language and writing, including "Writing Tools" and his most recent, "How to Write Short:  Word Craft for Fast Times."  The craft of short writing precedes the creation of Twitter and Facebook by about 3,000 years. Writers have always expressed their most important ideas in the shortest texts. Among the topics covered in this workshop:

*How to order words for emphasis.

*How to energize your verbs.

*How to figure out what to cut.

*How to tell stories in 140 characters.

*How revision works when texts are short.

*How to write in a variety of lengths.
