Hemingway said emotion should be expressed through action, and in this class you will write using his assertion and study it through various readings. Any genre can be used, such as poetry or prose and from it you can create new work, revise old, making your pieces publishable if that’s your goal. In the end you’ll be able to apply this technique. We will use a website platform or email, depending on how many students enroll.
