- Workshop—Francine Prose: Words versus Ideas
Workshop—Francine Prose: Words versus Ideas
How does a piece of writing start—with language or with an idea? What is most important to writers and to readers? What is the role of style, diction, word choice in what we write—and how we read? We will talk about all this—and more.
Presented in association with The Public Theater.
