    Perfecting Your Prose at SMU

    Learn how to perfect your prose with DFWWW Member, Tex Thompson during her 5-week class at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.  From Tex:  It's the timeless tragedy of 8th-grade English: most of us spend our formative years alternating between abject terror and fathomless boredom, and smother whatever we learned about subordinate clauses as soon as we escape high school. Years later, the sad result is that many aspiring writers struggle with the essentials of good writing – and even excellent, experienced writers are often left working from gut instinct: we know what we've written is effective, but can't articulate why. Perfecting Your Prose is... terror and fathomless boredom, and smother whatever we learned about subordinate clauses as soon as we escape high school. Years later, the sad result is that many aspiring writers struggle with the essentials of good writing – and even excellent, experienced writers are often left working from gut instinct: we know what we've written is effective, but can't articulate why.  all about 'micro'-level writing suitable for writers of all skill levels an opportunity for you to submit your writing for peer & professional critique a great investment in your work! In this class, we're ditching the sentence diagrams to focus exclusively on the grammatical, rhetorical, and linguistic concepts that writers of ALL skill levels can use to take their work to the next level. Starting in week 1 with the smallest molecular unit of writing – the word – we'll work our way up through phrases, sentences, paragraphs, and scenes, dissecting each in turn to discover what makes them tick. From participating in interactive discussions and presentations to revising first draft fiction and analyzing the work of A-list authors, you and your peers will work together through a variety of activities designed to make sure you finish the course with gold-star confidence in your knowledge of English – and a handsome vocabulary of writing-specific terms that you can use to continue improving for years to come.

    Reviews Reviews Reviews

    Three DFW Writers' Workshop members have received outstanding reviews from several publications this month.  Horror Underground on Russell Connor's GOOD NEIGHBORS:  A lot of books and authors are compared to Stephen King, especially fiction that showcases the dark side of the human condition. Good Neighbors is easy to compare as such, but I think that Connor’s writing has enough of its own voice that it doesn’t need the comparison. Click to read the full review.  Austin American-Statesman on Melissa Lenhardt's STILLWATER: A JACK McBRIDE MYSTERY:  Melissa Lenhardt of North Texas lays the foundation for a dangerous, romantic and seedy world with the first in a series, “Stillwater: A Jack McBride Mystery”...You want to know what is going to happen and how it’s going to go down. Click to read the full review.  Portland Book Review on Harry Hall's THE PEDESTRIENNES: AMERICA'S FORGOTTEN SUPERSTARS:  (The Pedestriennes: America’s Forgotten Superstars) is very easy and enjoyable to read. Most people will have very little knowledge or awareness of endurance walking, but should find this book to be interesting and even amazing. Click to read the full review.
