This note is the announcement of a prose composition course on the GreekStudy email list. The GreekStudy group is called WriteGreek and is using the North-Hillard Greek Prose Composition book available on http://www.textkit.com.
, along with the aid of Sidgwicks A First Greek Writer. While those books are in Attic, submissions will be accepted for any version of Ancient Greek, many on the list read primarily Koine.
One of the suggestions by those well-seasoned in such endeavors, is that one also needs to be reading some Greek author concurrently. This is a good chance to get a start on that γαλα.
γραφειν GRAFEIN to write
ακουειν AKOUEIN to listen
λαλειν LALEIN to speak
αναγινωσκειν ANAGINWSKEIN to read.
If you want to join, go to the site http://www.letsreadgreek.org/moodle2
