Free, 3 hour writing workshop!


For a writer in any genre, individual words are the bricks with which they work to build their structure. A character’s choice of words can reveal their origins, aspirations, and anxieties; mixing words from different registers can create laughter; and an unexpected-but-perfect word in the right place can strike a reader with the force of a blow. This session will look at nuances of diction through close reading of writers like Grace Paley, Natasha Trethewey, James Baldwin, and Jamaica Kincaid and through exercises and prompts. Students will leave with a greater appreciation for the expressive potential of individual words and a first draft of a poem or the first page of a story, script, or essay.


For writers age 13 - 18 ONLY. Register here: https://grubstreet.org/findaclass/class/young-adult-writers-program-yawp-words-for-style-signaling-and-surprise/
