Techniques of Revision: Converting a Phrase to a Clause
Tuesday, January 5
6:30 to 7:30 p.m. CT
This first Writing Smartly seminar of the new year will begin a series on techniques of revision. One such technique is to convert phrases to clauses. Our sentences are strong and crisp when we write an active scene for our readers to enter into, when we prefer verbs to nouns, and avoid strings of prepositional phrases. This one-hour seminar will explain how to identify common phrases and demonstrate how to redesign them as clauses to brighten our writing. Participants will receive a handout that summarizes the presentation, along with exercises and answers. You may enroll now through this registration link. Tuition is $25. Please note the new time: 6:30 p.m. CT.
