Beautiful Language with Ilka Tampke
Language is the raw material from which we build our stories. The more confident we are using words, sentences and paragraphs, the more control we have over our reader’s emotions.
Join award-winning author Ilka Tampke to take a deep dive into the power of language in fiction: crafting beautiful sentences, building artful paragraphs, infusing our work with metaphor, making our writing strong, muscular and musical.
Through readings and exercises, you will leave this workshop with greater mastery of the written word.
