WRIT 113 SC - Prose Style and the Sentence
This is a course about sentences. We will study how to appreciate and analyze them; how to expand and contract them; how to translate them from one register/style to another; and how to move their words around for rhetorical effect. We will read from a few style handbooks (with exercises), scrutinize sentences from a wide range of sources, imitate some major stylists, compose a couple of short papers, and even try our hand at diagramming sentences, as well as complete a course project. Mostly, though, we will take a workshop approach to crafting a wide range of sentences in which every word tells.
Course Credit: 0.5
