Registration is closed
Remote Session (OCWW will be remote only through December 2020) 

There’s something about sentences that tell me how to feel. “Sally was so sad” leaves me cold. But how do writers convey emotion and mood in not so many words? We’ll be looking at the dynamics of sentences, and doing some fun experiments.
