writer´s seminar week 3, " the beautiful sentence"
August 30 · 7:30pm - 9:30pm, JC Art school, 326 5th street
This talk will set out to create an appreciation for sentence architecture—necessarily in prose, though we will also discuss lines of poetry that accomplish a similar end. How important is that first sentence in a short story, really? What sets a great sentence apart from a merely good one? Through textual analysis of authors from Gertrude Stein to Jonathan Lethem, and an in-session exercise, we will attempt to turn a plain stat...ement into a piece of art.
