Your style is as unique and distinctive as your face, your voice, except that you can choose it, you can can work on it, enhance it. In this course we will introduce aspiring writers to the art of putting pressure on written language. We will study the use of metaphor and imagery, and demonstrate how clarity, grace, and inventiveness in word choice are imperative to a story’s success. Writers will emerge with the revision skills essential to all writers of good stories and good prose....

This course (particularly week 4 assignment) was challenging. I learned much and appreciate Salvatore Scibona and all the contributors to this course.

I thought the videos were excellent and the interviews of great value. I always download the text, create a .docx, and follow the videos word-for-word.

Mr Scibona was great. I would have loved to get his feedback but I suppose that's a lot to ask from an online class. I highly recommend this class!
