OSHR 1327 - Journey through a Book

  • Noncredit
  • Fort Collins

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

You’ll never read a book the same way after taking this class. We’ll discuss the inner workings of a novel and of several short stories or essays. We’ll gain fresh insight into how authors build suspense or pull readers into stories. We’ll uncover the "secret weapons" writers use, the unique voices they create, and the techniques they employ for dialogue and characterization.

A great class for anyone who loves to read or is interested in becoming a better writer. Just be warned: Books get heavier when you read them not only for pleasure, but also for their guts.
