Detailing: Advanced Prose Workshop

Detailing: Advanced Prose Workshop

Mar 28, 2020 1-4 p.m.
Location: Lake Erie Ink 2843 Washington Blvd, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118
Categories: Hone Your Craft
We often hear about the significance of detail in prose—especially what’s sometimes called “the telling detail.” Just what can detail tell us, and how so? In this workshop we’ll look at the uses and powers of detail and consider just what (perspective? character? setting? the passage of time? beauty? ethics?) detail can help build. How do we learn how to write more detailed details? How can detail build a world for readers to live in? Together we’ll read short examples of fiction and nonfiction, and look for new ways detail may enter and transform our writing.
