May 21, 2022 TPS workshop: The Lost Art of Copiousness: Using Words Well To Give Your Writing An Edge (ZOOM)

May 21, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT

How much do you have to say? Plenty? A great deal? Copious amounts? Loads? Heaps? Oodles? A boatload? Having much to say is a good start, but having facility with saying it is another matter. In this workshop, we will investigate the lost art of superfluity, not only with plot material but also with words themselves. Workshop activities may include synonym battles, thesaurus spelunking, and discussions about reading habits, commonplace books, memory-building techniques.
