About this Event
Have you ever read a sentence and felt like there were way too many words in it? Here's an example: "For the first and earliest time in his short young life, Michael was experiencing and feeling the sensations commonly associated with love, an emotion he had never felt before.” It's a common misconception among beginning writers that using more words makes one's writing sound more intelligent. The opposite is true. The trick to good writing is to say as much as you can in as few words as possible. Keep the good stuff, let the rest go. This workshop will explore strategies for recognizing and removing wordiness from your writing.
