What kind of sentence captures anxiety? Thought? A reminiscent narrator? A feeling of euphoria? Exhaustion? The style of the sentence–the diction, imagery, syntax, rhythm, and sound–isn't frivolous decoration, but content. Come to class prepared to write different kinds of sentences. By the end of this class, you will have mastered the art of writing sentences that do more than move the story along.
