About this course:

How do writers make you laugh and cry? This course is designed for beginners and those who want to juice up their writing and gain mastery to do both. You begin by exploring emotion-packed fiction, short prose, and poems to discover tips, tricks, and strategies to make readers ache, cheer characters on, or hold their sides with laughter. You also learn about gesture, pacing, tone, juxtaposition, hyperbole, personification, double entendres, and more. Through stimulating writing exercises, you are encouraged to find your own voice and create short writing (prose or poems) about yourself and/or fictional characters that can attract the attention of readers and editors.
