You Know It's Fancy When It's Got Paragraphs

My creative writing classes are currently engaged in nonfiction workshop. This means the students bring in essays to share for whole class discussion. They also prepare a letter they hand back to the authors, and this letter is supposed to discuss the craft of the essays and what elements of that craft they found intriguing and strong.

This is one of the letters handed in tonight:

Dear Tim,

This is a really good story. I like how you told it in paragraphs.
