Wordplay is delightful and stimulating. To energize the flow of writing, participants focus on process through basic examples and fun exercises, which bulldoze past writer's block. Please register.

Build a supply of relevant words: strong sensory ones; for metaphors, simple words (4 letters, not 14); vibrant verbs. Join great writers in creating words for emphasis, contrasts, and clarity. In rewriting, eliminate powerless words and replace with picturesque, positive choices. For sentences, arrange word placement to empower statements. Through edit sheets, writers study subtle differences in pejorative words and listen to alliteration, repetition, rhythm to enhance paragraphs.

Taught by Sandra Walker. Formerly teaching for the University of Cincinnati and University of Washington, Sandra now teaches writing for the University of Washington Lifelong Learning Institute.
