All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.” -Ernest Hemingway

Taught by Lynne Golodner, whose work has appeared in Saveur, Poets & Writers, Seventeen, Better Homes and Gardens, Parenting, Parents, Good Housekeeping, HOME, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, and so many more.

Pulling inspiration from one of this instructor's (and the world's) favorite authors, Ernest Hemingway, we will explore how Hemingway wrote such crisp, flowing fiction and learn how to employ his techniques in any genre to make your writing come alive.

Weekly lessons will examine how Hemingway wrote such spare and powerful prose, and offer tips for adopting some of the elements of his compelling writing in your own, no matter what genre you prefer.
This course will focus on the art of word choice. Weekly writing prompts will be assigned and all work submitted will receive feedback from Lynne and your peers in the workshop. Students can expect to leave this course with an understanding of what is needed in their writing as well as what can be eliminated to make for more compelling, poignant, and beautiful writing.
A full course syllabus and schedule will be sent out prior to the class start date, which will include weekly readings from Hemingway's oeuvre.

COURSE TAKEAWAYS:
  • Learn to write tight as a way of connecting with your reader.
  • Experiment with simplicity toward paring down your writing to absolute essentials.
  • Learn how to use powerful verbs as descriptive tools.
  • Become a judicious user of only the best adjectives.
  • Emerge a more powerful and focused writer who turns out writing that people want to read.

REQUIRED TEXT:

Students are required to purchase a copy of The Short Stories: The First Forty-nine Stories with a Brief Preface by the Author for this course.

ONLINE COURSE STRUCTURE:

This class is entirely asynchronous which means you complete the weekly assignments on your own schedule. There are no set meeting times in order to allow for greater participation; your cohort will consist of writers from across different time zones, which allows for a wonderful diversity of voices.

Along with your weekly deadlines there is plenty of interaction with Lynne and your peers within Wet Ink, our dedicated online classroom. Craft materials, lectures, reading assignments, and writing prompts are all available through the online classroom. Students also post work and provide and receive feedback within the online classroom environment.

You can get the work done as you see fit week-to-week, so it is perfect for any schedule. There are discussion questions each week inspired by the assigned readings and topics in the lecture notes. Students are encouraged to take these wherever is most compelling and/or useful for them. Lynne engages with these discussions throughout the week and you will receive feedback from all assigned writing activities.

ABOUT LYNNE GOLODNER:

You know that person you were when you were little, before the pressures and stresses of having to earn a living or support a family? Back when you engaged in activities simply because they were fun and you were driven to do them? For Lynne Golodner, that person loved writing. In the early 1980s, she carried around a corduroy-covered journal, writing stories, poems, and skits. When a neighbor’s son tragically died in middle school, Lynne created a neighborhood newsletter to give his parents as a way to express sympathy for their loss. Writing was her way of figuring out the world, of capturing momentary beauty and stunning silence.

Lynne has written about home, architecture, design and real estate, food, faith and family, and she is the author of eight books. A nationally-celebrated journalist, Lynne has lived in New York, Washington, D.C., and Detroit, before pivoting her career to focus on marketing. Her writing has appeared in magazines and newspapers across America including Saveur, Better Homes and Gardens, Midwest Living, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, the Detroit News, Parenting, Parents, AARP: The Magazine, Seventeen, Good Housekeeping, HOME, Teacher Magazine, Hockey Digest, Poets & Writers, Tennis Magazine, Crain’s Detroit Business and so many more.

When she became a single mother of three young children in 2007, Lynne parlayed her communication skills into a new role as Founder and Chief Creative Officer at Your People – a marketing and public relations company with a focus on purpose and story that revolutionizes how organizations build brand awareness and grow their bottom line.

With a specialty working with Waldorf/Steiner schools, she helps schools and universities, nonprofits, and entrepreneurs market with meaning through strategic storytelling, mutually beneficial relationships and higher purpose. She has spent more than 20 years as an entrepreneur, college writing professor, and author, inspiring others to find their voice, identify their purpose, and live according to the unique passion found within. She believes the work you do should align with who you are at the core – and from there, grows a life of purpose.

Lynne is a 2020-2021 member of the Forbes Agency Council and repeatedly receives awards for her innovative marketing and public relations leadership. In 2019, she was recognized by MichBusiness as a Marketing & PR Prophet, and in 2018 Crain’s Detroit Business named Lynne a Notable Woman in Marketing.

Her most recent venture is the Make Meaning Movement, including the Make Meaning Podcast, which she launched in 2018. Lynne writes about marketing with meaning at Forbes.com. She also teaches writing and marketing/PR at University of Detroit Mercy.

Lynne has taught a variety of classes throughout North America, including her signature courses What’s Your Story, 21-Day Blogging Challenge, Sports Writing, Food Writing, The Art of the Essay, and Find Your Voice. Her college courses have included composition, literature and poetry, professional writing, creative writing, journalism, business writing and academic writing, among others.

A Fulbright Specialist, Lynne graduated from University of Michigan (BA, Communications/English) and Goddard College (MFA, Writing). She is the mother of four teenagers and lives in Huntington Woods, Michigan.
