Beginnings and Endings

Instructor(s): Matt Kotula

This workshop is devoted to recognizing, analyzing and composing effective prose beginnings and endings. Half of the sessions will be devoted to beginnings, half to endings. Participants will workshop one another’s pieces and complete in-class writing prompts. Participants will be given texts to respond to and they will have the opportunity to share their own favorites. Sub-topics will center on issues such as strategy, audience, style, genre, and voice.
