Enrol in Writing that Resonates
Course Code: ARTS2102
You write something. Now, what does that piece of writing do? What experience do you create for your reader? Where are you taking your reader and what does your reader see, hear, and know by your story? What patterns are showing up in your work? What are you avoiding? What is it that makes a passage or story resonate with a reader long after the story is over? Learn how to listen to your work. Like the master mechanic who, upon hearing the revs and sputters of an engine, can say what's working and what needs work inside a car, you will develop your ear for the resonance and voice in your craft. To listen to your work in this way is a discipline that, like any other skill, can be developed. Participants will listen to each other's work, read the work of great writers, and begin all work with two questions: What does this story do? and, How did this writer make the story do that? All honing, revision, refinement, editing, amplification and development of both story and character flows from this.
