Repeat Yourself

  • Nashville Public Library 615 Church Street Nashville, TN, 37219 United States (map)

Repetition goes by many names: litany, refrain, cataloging, and anaphora. It is an incredibly versatile literary device and in this workshop we will learn how to use repetition to heighten emotion and write powerful pieces that capture your listener’s ear.

This is a free writing workshop intended for high school students. Students of all backgrounds and skill levels are welcome. Registration is open. Sign up here!
