Writing with Style Workshop with Matthew Salesses
Writespace presents Writing with Style Workshop with Matthew Salesses.
What is a "prose stylist" and how do you become one? What makes Michael Ondaatje or George Saunders or Barry Hannah a stylist? Using examples from fiction and nonfiction, we will work out how (and when and why) to add music to your sentences.
