Alyse Knorr's Published Work

Breadth of knowledge and generosity in presenting it are one thing, and so are an inviting, confidence-building presence—but it's rare to be stoked with genuine excitement over revelations about language. Alyse really delivered, and I'd take another course from her in a heartbeat. There was no mistaking everyone's pleasure in Alyse's examples, insights, and solicitations. Terrific instruction, and, as I say, exciting in the revelations. It was as much a celebration as anything else. Gets you pumped for writing in a lasting way.
