HOW TO CREATE VIVID DESCRIPTION WITHOUT CLICHÉS
Jennie Spallone will teach us how to substitute high-intensity verbs for overused adjectives, verbs, and adverbs. The author of two written expression texts and three adult mysteries, and a former freelance journalist, Jennie taught Investigative Journalism to gifted middle-school students. Chris Roerden will also help identify clichéd plot situations, so bring your own not-favorite examples. Always free and open to the public at High Point Library.
