Enrich Your Writing With Vivid Imagery

After we build strong plots and compelling characters we can’t forget about the power of our sentences. In this session, you’ll learn how to spice up those dull scenes! Learn to transform a dull sentence with arresting prose, or sensory images that convey emotion and theme with subtlety. We’ll look at contemporary examples and tease apart metaphor and simile, and make them regular tools. We’ll bust cliches and use fresh images to say the same thing, only better. You’ll  up your game by learning to use images thematically to plant subtext, create foreshadowing, and build tension in any story.
