Artful Prose: Grammar and Style for Writers

Designed to enhance students' ability to think about and incorporate issues of prose style in deliberate and sophisticated ways, the class will offer students a vocabulary and a skill set for implementing nuanced issues of English style and syntax. The class is recommended for creative and critical writers.
