About the Workshop

Course Description:

Verbose descriptions, extra words, unnecessary phrases, and other forms of overwriting can bog down a good story and make the difference between an okay book and an excellent one. Published author Elf Ahearn will share secrets about tightening sentences, ridding them of repetitious ideas and phrases, and disposing of words that bog down your pace and your prose. You will learn how to take a flabby sentence and whip it into a slim, trim, thing of beauty that conveys exactly the mood, action, or emotion you wish to convey. If you’re being told to tighten your writing, this is the workshop for you.
