About This Event

What sentences do you craft to capture anxiety? Thought? A reminiscent narrator? What kind of sentence creates a feeling of euphoria? Of exhaustion? The style of the sentence-the diction, imagery, syntax, rhythm, and sound-isn't frivolous decoration, but content. By the end of this class, you will have mastered the art of writing sentences that do more than move the story along. Nina Schuyler is the author of The Translator, which won the 2014 Next Generation Indie Award for General Fiction and was shortlisted for the Saroyan International Writing Award. Her first novel, The Painting, was nominated for the Northern California Book Award and named a Best Book by the San Francisco Chronicle. She's also the author of How to Write Stunning Sentences, published 2018 by Fiction Advocate. Her short stories have been nominated for The Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net, and have been published in ZYZZYVA, Your Impossible Voice, Fugue, Santa Clara Review and elsewhere. She writes a column for Fiction Advocate about style and teaches creative writing at the University of San Francisco.
