“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.
- 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.
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.

“Every now and then you attend a truly awesome workshop that provides real practical sound advice for a situation with many unique questions. This course was that for me.”
“Lynne is changing my life. She knew I was hesitating about moving forward on my dream path. I’d start, lose focus, then stop again. Lynne is keeping me accountable and her confidence in me makes a huge difference. "
"With Lynee's coaching, I got recognition in just weeks! She keeps pushing me to apply my talents, live loudly, and be a beacon for others. She shares her secrets."
