Find course by title:
Style is a term used to describe the manner of expression in written language. To achieve the mastery of style that will enable you to express yourself in a way that is fresh, original, and appropriate across audiences and situations, you need to be able to choose the right words, arrange them appropriately, and punctuate them in a way that controls pacing and emphasis. This course is intended to help you achieve those goals. Working together, we will learn specific principles of style and examine the effects of stylistic variations. We will (1) derive a common vocabulary for discussing writing, (2) examine the effect of particular stylistic devices on readers, and (3) become better editors of our own writing and the writing of others. The course focuses on the theory and practice of writing clear, effective prose. It will interest and benefit any student who wants to improve the clarity, precision and coherence of his or her writing---whether the student intends to be a professional writer (creative, professional or technical writers) or a professional who writes (lawyers, engineers, scientists, business managers) ---in other words, just about anybody.
