Writing: Close Reading
Teacher: Kendall Pack
One of the best ways to improve our work is to investigate pieces that we love and find the things that make them so effective. For this course, we will look at a selection of written work and use the skill of close reading to fill our Writer’s Toolbox for a more strategic approach to the drafting process. This is especially helpful when trying to solve problems in our dialogue, scene construction, action, and character development. Please make sure you read the writing packet in advance so that we can have a shared library to work from for our discussion. Bring specific concerns about your own writing that you are seeking solutions for.
