Crafting the Personal Essay: Writing From Lived Experience

January 10 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

- Free – $65

The personal essay is an effective method for uncovering the deeper thoughts, causes, and concerns that lie beneath your lived experience. It’s also a compelling format for directly communicating what you think and feel about a topic, a way of conveying personal experience or expertise in a subject in a conversational tone that invites the reader into your world. In this class, we’ll discuss what goes into an effective and satisfying personal essay—and what doesn’t. Through in-class examples, writing exercises, and feedback, we’ll learn how to artfully express both the mundane and the novel, and discover more about ourselves in the process.
