What is style?

We create labels to kind of describe a style so that when we say punk you have an idea of the type of fashion or hairstyle or makeup might be associated with punk. And if we say steampunk, you have a slightly different image!

In writing, there are different styles, too.

Writing a research paper is different than writing a newspaper article or a blog article.

Some of the most popular blogs use an informal writing style using words like easy-peasy and slang and relaxed punctuation with sentence fragments, and a breaking of all the writing rules–Jiminy Cricket!

To illustrate the importance of style, you could take the same situation, but put it in a different setting, and the style of writing will change. Think of The Tortoise and the Hare with a western style!

If you’d like to explore writing in different styles, sign up for the current session of Write Now!

We’ll dabble in these styles:

  • suspense
  • comic
  • fairy tale
  • mystery
  • western
  • dystopian
  • editorial
  • persuasive

If you’d like an opportunity to apply yourself to trying out some new writing styles, sign up for this eight-week session of Write Now! For less than the cost of one piano lesson, get a whole month of writing instruction, assignments, examples, feedback, critique and mentoring.

We offer a special discounted Write Now! for students. The student rate for writing lessons is $7.95 per month, and you can unsubscribe at any time. To enroll in the Student Writing Lessons, click the subscribe button.
