Show, Don’t Tell—But How?

March 14, 2020 @ EST 10:00 am


Member price:$65
Deadline to register: March 6, 11:59 pm

Instructor: Alex Sanchez

You’ve probably been told at least once, “show, don’t tell!” It’s one of the fundamental rules of writing, but how exactly can we do it? Through class discussions, reading examples, and writing exercises, we’ll take a deep dive into learning the specific tools and techniques used by great writers and apply them to our own projects. (And we’ll also learn when it’s okay to tell.)

Recommended Bibliography:
