For Fiction and Nonfiction writers, this seminar will teach you the tools and techniques of editing, focusing on line editing, refining your prose, and preparing your manuscript for submission. We will consider the art of prose, the importance of sound, and how to construct a paragraph (in particular, a compelling opening paragraph). We will learn to write clear, rhythmic sentences—seeking a balance between lyricism and efficiency—while remaining faithful to your voice. There will be in-class exercises and readings.
