Learn how to examine each sentence and get rid of the clutter. Be guided in choosing the right word rather than several inadequate words. Practice descriptive writing without the fluff. Garner the courage to identify excess and make those painful cuts. Workshop includes instruction, class discussion and group and individual exercises.
