Thursdays: 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM between September 12 - October 17. The personal essay combines a wide range of techniques to make personal stories compelling to readers. Primarily through participants' work, this workshop will explore the use of voice, reflection, and dialogue as well as other techniques that shape personal stories and make them resonate with the reader. There will be some time spent writing in class; most of the time will be focused on giving constructive and supportive feedback on participants' work. Each participant will have two opportunities to have work critiqued. If you have a personal essay ready for critique, please bring a copy to the first class.
