Let's make your writing shine! 

We spend a lot of time working over the specifics of plot and structure and form, but now let's get down and dirty on a line by line level. Oh yeah! Let's explore how to turn turgid sentences into sparkly magic, how to do good metaphor, and how to make your writing feel true and real.
