Seminar: Clean Out the Fuzz: Crafting Prose with Meaning, Sense, and Clarity

Saturday, May 30th 2015 - 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm at WriterHouse
508 Dale Avenue

Instructor: Jay Varner
Cost: $60.00 Members | $65.00 Non-Members
Saturday, May 30, 2015 | 1:00 PM-5:00 PM

LIMITED TO 18 STUDENTS.

Do you use ten words to say what could be said in five? Do your words say what you mean? If not, as William Zinsser says, perhaps “some fuzz has worked its way into the machinery.” Readers expect writers to have distilled their prose to its essence–whether it’s fiction or nonfiction, the style simple or complex. We will discuss examples of great prose, common issues with prose, and touch upon two things that make all writers cringe: grammar and punctuation.
