Precision in Language 

Days: 1 Saturday
Time: 1:00 PM-4:00 PM
Dates: 5/26/2018
Location: Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center 4805 Edgemoor Ln, Bethesda, MD 20814
Level: All Levels
Genre(s): Mixed Genre

Workshop Leader: Virginia Hartman
Learn the skills to identify precisely the right word to express your meaning, feeling, or subtext. Participants will look at examples in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, and discuss what makes an expression fresh rather than expected, where and how to find the mot juste (the exact, appropriate word), and why precision can succeed in getting your work noticed. Mine your bookshelves and come to class with one or two brief passages in which the author uses language with an evocative precision.

Please note: Due to building renovations during the summer, workshops are being relocated to the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center, 4805 Edgemoor Ln, Bethesda, MD 20814. See map and directions here.
