New Online Class: Using Imitation to Explore Your Writing Style

Class Title: Reading for Writers: Using Imitation to Explore Your Writing Style
Instructor: Liz Beaty 
Class Term: August 1-August 29, 2016
Enroll here: Story Circle Online Classes


Reading is a writer's secret weapon. The more you read, the more tools you have at your fingertips when you start writing. In this class, to practice using these tools, we will use imitation. Imitation will allow you to determine whether the tools feel right in your hands. If they do, you can use them to help strengthen your voice. If they feel phony and inappropriate, don't. Through trial and error, you'll able to find writing styles that you want to use more and those that you want to avoid.

Class Description

Over the next 4-weeks, we will read the New York Times Bestseller Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) by Jenny Lawson.  The reading assignments will be approximately 90 pages per week. The writing assignments will be geared toward exploring your personal writing style and trying out different methods of storytelling.

At the end of this class, students will be able to read a book and explore their personal writing style.
