ONLINE Into The Deep: Beyond The First Draft
What happens after you’ve written a draft? In this course, we’ll explore the essentials of moving a piece into the power zone. We’ll combine engaging in-class exercises and writing time with small doses of homework to push first drafts into the deep. We’ll learn how to detail a piece with sensory language, layer it with literary devices, and refine it with a dominant impression. Three maxims will guide us: Writing is hard; work it. Writing is play; tinker with it. Writing is inside; mine it.
