PUNCTUATE: Little Marks, Big Effects


Punctuate” means “to point out,” from a Latin word meaning “to prick, pierce.” Isn’t that, really, all we want our writing to do: pierce the reader? In this interactive, hands-on inquiry for writers of all genres, we’ll discuss sample verse and prose to observe the effects of the period, comma, colon, semi-colon, slash, em-dash, parentheses and ellipses, as well as the absence of punctuation, then practice applying these choices to our own writings.


Marj Hahne is a freelance editor, writer, and writing teacher, and a 2015 MFA graduate from the Rainier Writing Workshop, with a concentration in poetry.
