Home Writing Therapy: Crafting the Best Sentence

This immersive workshop focuses on the writer’s craft. It encourages the writer to consider the choices they make when writing a sentence, just one sentence, and the effects it creates. They will re-write the same sentence 8 times, tweaking it a little each time, until it is the best sentence they’ve ever written. Learners will also become familiar with the metalanguage of grammar in context. Innovative teaching research finds this to be the more effective way to learn grammatical items.
