H697: Resisting Cliché: How to Craft a Great Metaphor in Splash Fall 2021 (Nov. 13, 2021)
This was a real analogy written by a high school student: “He was as tall as a 6’3” tree.” Why was this analogy bad? What makes a metaphor “great”? In this workshop-style class, students will be exposed to a variety of “good” versus “bad” examples of figurative language in creative writing. We’ll then work together in groups to come up with our own unique similes and metaphors in response to various writing exercises.
