Writing Sizzling Sentences

How do the lengths and structures of our sentences influence the way our writing works? In this workshop, we'll use the work of Sandra Cisneros and exercises developed by Ursula LeGuinn to learn how to make our sentences work for us. We'll also discuss sentence-based revision strategies developed by Felicia Rose Chavez that we can use while revisiting our work. Appropriate for all levels of writing.
