Ep 35 | Walt Whitman: Clarity

Number 35. Isn't that a nice round number? In episode 35 we get into the nitty-gritty of what makes a work clear. Using Walt Whitman's poem Song of Myself we can break down the sentence by sentence, and word by word details that help your writing to make sense.
ALSO! This episode – in addition to our writing prompt – we have our first writing exercise!
In the near future I'll have a web-page dedicated to all of these exercises on my website so stay tuned, and make sure to check in.
