  • Building Better Sentences: A Quick And Dirty And Mostly Grammar-Free Guide To More Effective Writing

    East Meeting Room (1/2 of Large), West Meeting Room (1/2 of Large) Sat., Nov. 4th 3:00pm - 4:00pm

    Join writer and University of Iowa professor, Brooks Landon as he details a couple basic ideas can help anyone write better sentences. Dr. Landon will help us explore our sense of options-all the things a sentence can be and/or do-not a trudge toward grammatical correctness and avoidance of errors, but a dance with language, a celebration of the gift of style. This event is for anyone who is interested in improving their writing; whether you are working on writing a novel or writing your annual holiday letter. Brooks Landon is a Professor in the University of Iowa English Department, where he teaches courses on contemporary literature, including science fiction, and a Prose Style course devoted entirely to the many forms sentences can take. He is currently fascinated by the apocalyptic turn in contemporary postmodern fiction, and has become something of an expert in forms taken by our current fascination with zombies, devoting a course, Dead is the New Alive to the question: Why do we apparently need all these zombie stories? His postmodern fiction course, Masters of Disaster, focuses on the many kinds of non-zombie apocalypses that have recently appeared in literary fiction. His Prose Style course is built around his book, Building Great Sentences: How to Write the Kinds Sentences We Love to Read. Landon earned his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin and has been at Iowa since 1978. This program is sponsored by Humanities Iowa and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
