The Spirit of Enquiry ~ Jan 17

Stumped with nothing compelling to say? Vexed that you sound like a thumping bore? In this first session, learn how not to be boring and how to train your mind to formulate dynamic, vibrant ideas, and a line of questioning that would inspire even yourself. Walk away with tips to expand the mind and vocabulary through savvier reading habits.

*

Show, Show, Show ~ Jan 24

Grasp the concept of showing (versus telling) and how being specific is vital in writing well. If details are the lifeblood of writing, learn also the fine art of discerning the kind of details that matter, and how not to rush in your prose and your thoughts.

*

Paragraphs & Transitions ~ Jan 31

Transitioning from one paragraph to the next involves more than just linking words. We’ll observe some of the ways writers and journalists glide from one paragraph to the next with ease, and how their ideas grow organically from one to the other.

Editing ~ Feb 14

Perhaps the most overlooked writing skill in schools is the one concerning revising and omitting unnecessary words. The concept is easy enough to grasp, but let’s learn how we can make this writing wisdom come alive by editing essays you’ve written.
