Good writing shows attention not only to content and form, but also to the sound of the language itself.  We’ll look at examples from some of our most admired authors, and discuss how cadence, “flow,” and other sound devices contribute to the pleasure of reading.
 
This program is for anyone who enjoys reading and wants to learn more about writing.  No special knowledge or experience is necessary.  All who enjoy reading and writing are welcome to attend.
 
You will not be required to write or share your own work, but you will have the option to do so in a warm supportive atmosphere at the end of the meeting. 
 
Registration required:  Stop by the Reference Desk or call 508.210.5569.
