This course will focus on a group of specific techniques for shaping and informing your writing, including voice, tone, and point of view; use of tense; and use of detail. Through analysis and discussion of sample texts and numerous in-class exercises, we will work toward achieving vivid precision. Each session will focus on a different tool or group of related tools; come prepared to read, write, and talk. To get the most out of this class, we suggest you prepare by taking 'Read Like a Writer.' Maureen teaches writing at the U and is the former president of Writers @ Work. Her poetry has appeared in many journals, including Bellingham Review, Colorado Review, Gettysburg Review, and Alaska Review. She recently completed a memoir titled The Gods Between Us and is currently working on a creative nonfiction novel based on the 1930 murder of Dorothy Moormeister.
