The Manipulation of Language is Your Most Powerful Tool
(part of the Everything Your Need to Write a Beautiful Story series)

You are the Thor of your story and your bolt of lightning is language. Originally entitled, The Word and the Sentence, this workshop will teach you how language is the one powerful tool at your disposal to create, within your readers, the reactions that you desire. Language is a toolbox full of many instruments. Among others, this workshop will teach you how to use:

  • Diction
  • Sound Devices
  • Figurative Language
  • Types of Phrases
  • Style

Don’t rely on guesswork when you write. Understand what you are doing with the language that you put on the page.

Learn to harness your lightning bolts.
