Workshop description

Writing is the accretion of words into designs of meaning that grow evermore complex: Writers mine, smelt, and mill words; they solder them into phrases; they weld those into clauses; and they forge these into sentences, which are collected into paragraphs that, through recursive revision, are gilt, filigreed, and burnished into brilliance. In this four-hour workshop, the rhetorical mechanics at work in this extended metaphor (vis-à-vis the sentence and paragraph) will be introduced and practiced.

Target group: all students
