Do you want to write poetry or prose that sparkles with vivid sensory detail and imagery? To generate metaphors and similes revealing multiple layers of meaning? To construct lyrical lines with alliteration and assonance evoking sound as well as sight? Through mini-lectures, discussion, in-class exercises, and workshopping of students’ writing, you will learn to write more descriptively and precisely. Class examples will be from poetry and fiction, but nonfiction writers also will benefit.
