To Decide, To Judge, To Toast: Thinking & the Art of Rhetoric (WEBINAR)

Tuesday, December 3, 2019 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

When: December 3, 4:00-5:30pm EST
Where: Online
Cost: Only $10!

You may have heard that the The Lost Tools of Writing contains "time-tested tools to solve the problems all writers face”. But what does that mean? What are the problems that writers face? What are the tools and where did they come from? What is the purpose of using these tools? How can I get the most out of them?

In this 90-minute webinar, Camille Hunt will answer these questions, provide some history and philosophy behind LTW, and discuss the place of LTW in learning to write well. 

We will look at the three canons of rhetoric that are included in LTW, what is contained in each canon at each level, and how each level builds on the previous level. We will see how the common topics expand into the special topics, how each arrangement piece is refined in an appropriate way for each kind of rhetoric, and what kinds of editing are included, along with the figures of speech that help us express our ideas more fully.

• The seminar will be recorded; however, you must sign up before December 3 to have access to it. Registration will be cut off at 2:00pm (EST) on December 3.
