Sometimes a sentence is very long, and it keeps going and going with commas in places that a period could be and extra clauses that don’t necessarily need to be there. Other times a sentence is short. Which is better? As is so often the case, the answer is “it depends.” Join our hosts Chris, Wes, and Ariel as they discuss what lengths are appropriate in what contexts, as well as how to vary a sentence’s length. Plus, where in a sentence should you put your most striking words? Our hosts are happy to tell you.
