Writing Brilliant Paragraphs
Instructor: Trai Cartwright
The best writing seems effortless and dynamic, but how did the writer make it that way? Was it magic? Good luck? Not at all—just some fundamental craft devices all great writers know. If you’re ready to work at this level, bring a scene from your own work, and we’ll pull apart what makes for a great paragraph, and how to write one after another after another. This is an advanced mechanics class that unpacks writing at the paragraph, sentence, and word choice level. More information.

Hot off the Press

Damned If You DoThe path to temptation is paved with a hellish amount of paperwork. Soul acquisition is a drag, but if Abaddon doesn’t catch up on his quota, he could be demoted to scooping poop for the Hounds of Hell. With a deadline hanging over him, he heads for the Bible Belt, looking for the perfect combination of sweetness and challenge. Seth is a blind musician, part of a traveling tent revival. He’s cute, mystically talented, and quotes the Bible at every turn. His soul is pure enough to fill Abaddon’s quota for months to come, and Abaddon is determined to claim it. Marie Sexton's Damned If You Do, is available for purchase on Amazon. See more member books in our library!
