(Zoom) February 16, 2022 – Poetswords: Choosing the Right Word

Words, Words, Words: We are all wordsmiths. Whether we’re writing fiction, nonfiction or poetry, we strive to find just the right word. In this workshop, we will look at the etymology, sound, meanings, and associations of a number of words using excerpts from multiple genres. Then we will look at some pieces and discuss the best word to fill each gap. These pieces will be provided, but participants are also encouraged to bring their own work.
