The Ideal Sentence
your voice, your tone, your mood, your pace
Sunday, November 7, 2021, 3 PM – 4:15 PM EST
It’s time to think about sentences—the ways they work (and sometimes don’t), the ways we bend them to get closer to the truth, and the ways we work on patterns and rhythms so that the pages remain alive. Hilton Als, Michael Ondaatje, Jean-Dominique Bauby, Jia Tolentino, Annie Dillard, Olivia Laing, Carmen Machado, Terry Tempest Williams, and Mark Richard will inspire our discussion. Exercises will be focused on voice, tone, mood, and pace.
