Crafting Evocative Prose

In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to write with sensual clarity (crucial) and how to avoid boring or banal generalizations and passive verbs (also crucial). We’ll also discuss “The Metaphor Machine,” a five-step process designed to help you create metaphors that illuminate complex or abstract concepts by translating them into concrete, striking images that resonate with readers. Take your writing to the next level! $25 per person. Instructor: Jane K. Cleland
