Event description

Description

Do you have a writing project you want to start? One you’ve started, but need to return to? One in revision? This course series can help you improve your craft and achieve your writing goals through the elements of narrative. The series will help you:

● Produce, edit, and market imaginative writing

Read and write in the genres of your choice: fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction.

Learn to use literary elements as tools to improve writing.

Write informal discourse as means of self-discovery and invention.

Write by working through the processes of invention, drafting, revision, and proofreading.

Learn pre-writing techniques to help you beat writer’s block.

Evaluate others’ writing and your own.

● Develop editing skills and understanding of the roles of editors.

Dec. 9: Symbol and Figurative Language

How do we describe abstract concepts like love or hope? We often use comparisons to something concrete, something we do know to understand what we don’t. The different types of comparisons help deepen our writing and help readers to see more clearly what we imagine. This meeting will help you improve your use of symbols and figurative language.
