This course is for academics who would like to learn how to write more vividly within their academic writing: books, articles, and essays. You will learn how to more richly write scenes (interviews, observations, setting and place) from your fieldwork with a fiction and creative-nonfiction writer, and consider sentence structure and image with a poet. You’ll also learn how to enact theory within lyrical and narrative writing. Ultimately, you will bring these techniques into your own academic writing to both move your readers and reach a broader audience. This five-day course (maximum 12 places) will meet once a day for three hours, including breaks. It will include feedback on your writing. The course may be rescheduled if spaces aren’t filled; full refunds will be an option for those who choose not to reschedule.
