Prose Hacks – It takes years of hard work and dedication to become a great writer. But to become a good writer … well, there are some cheats and shortcuts for that. Starting with sentence structure and working on up to constructing the perfect paragraph, Jim Genia will reveal some of these “prose hacks”, and he’ll show how the greats – like Ernest Hemingway to Chuck Palahnuik – used these tricks, too.
Jim has been a sports journalist since 2001, covering mixed martial arts/Ultimate Fighting for a variety of outlets and traveling all over the world just to get splattered with blood. He has an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the New School, and his book, “Raw Combat” (Citadel Press, 2011), is considered the definite text on the underground fight scene in New York City. He lives in Tampa but misses the Big Apple dearly.
