Personal Essay and Lifestories Workshop

Personal essays allow us to dig into our life stories in a short and potent form.

In this workshop, you will learn how to dig into and shape personal narratives, whether they are pieces of an autobiography, sections of a memoir, journal entries or blog posts, into a form that can move others.

Since your own work will be the core of our material, you will get a chance to write a lot for this class, with detailed feedback from the instructor and your peers, not to mention two-week deadlines to keep you going.

Each week we will turn to classic and contemporary essayists for tools to make our work better.

(This workshop is designed to be a long-term home for essay writers and you’ll be welcome to repeat it to continue building your material and your network.)
