Show v. Tell: Demystifying the Rule

Show v. Tell: Demystifying the Rule

Instructor: Liz Prato
August 18, 10 a.m.–11:30 a.m., $45

Show, don’t tell, is a writing maxim we hear again and again, yet it remains elusive to many writers. In this popular class we’ll look at clear examples of showing and telling. You’ll learn how, when, and why to do each (yes, it’s sometimes okay to tell!), and demystify the sometimes blurry line between the two.
