Have you ever wondered how to make the world around you come alive on the page, how to accurately describe the color of the sky or the texture of the sand?


In this class on description, we’ll focus on the image, that most essential nuts-and-bolts element of fiction and poetry. We will analyze and define what makes for an emotionally evocative image and work toward creating some of our own. We will delve deep into examples of descriptive writing sourced from both fiction and poetry, harnessing the insights gleaned from these analyses to better construct resonant images of our own.


This course will be both generative and sharing-based. Writers will be encouraged not only to elevate their descriptive capabilities but also to use these capabilities to deepen the nuances of their characters’ voices and interiority.

About the Instructor:

Lauren Aliza Green is the author of The World After Alice, forthcoming this year from Viking/Penguin, and the chapbook A Great Dark House, winner of the Poetry Society of America's Chapbook Fellowship. She holds an MFA from the Michener Center for Writers.
