About this Talk

Professor Paul Butler literally wrote the book on style for writers, and here he shares his deep expertise to help you construct your own distinctive style. The talk focuses on the benefits of the "loose" style or cumulative sentence for novelists, but Paul points out half a dozen other techniques that you can use without any fancy grammatical knowledge.
