Write Like a Boss
Words hold more power than gravity itself, and somehow we earthlings have been entrusted with them. As verbal creatures, we have no choice but to speak and write. This course aims to make students better at being what they already are: communicators. Each weekly lesson and accompanying assignment is designed to help students hunt, corner, and kill crusty writing (thinking) habits while they simultaneously perform CPR on the wholesome habits that may have been previously learned but neglected. Students will also learn fresh methods of clearly communicating all the things their hearts could ever wish to blurt. Among the topics we’ll cover: Figures of Speech (metaphor, simile, personification, etc.), Showing instead of Telling, Killing Cliches, Writing in Active Voice, How to be Concise, and much more.
