What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

As writers, we live and move and have our being in a world of words. The bricks and mortar from which we build are the phrases, sentences, sounds, and tropes of our own texts which, in turn, echo those of others. In fact, we are rooted in and formed by the work other authors, whether we know it or not. Our reading makes us who we are as writers. In this workshop we will explicitly examine this wellspring of literary creativity and influence. What are we reading, and how? From commonplacing, to lectio divina, to short takes, we will experience a range of techniques, some ancient some new, for enriching your life as a reader and thereby help you grow and mature as a writer.
