“A good sentence must do more than reveal its subject matter.” Carolyn Fourche

Whether working on a short story or a novel, a writer must not lose sight of the fact that creative work is made up of “one good sentence after another.” Like rogue waves, rogue sentences surprise and overtake the reader, roiling with energy that sweeps the story into a whole greater than the sum of its parts. We will read snippets of some of North America’s best writers, discover the ways in which rogue sentences are essential for their/our stories, and delve into how to make our own sentences/paragraphs/stories resonate into a shimmering whole.
