This monthly class explores the personal essay for advanced students. We meet once a month and discuss a classic and/or contemporary published essay. The rest of our class time is spent providing feedback for one another’s manuscripts. This course is limited to 10 students. Participants should expect to contribute at least one essay of 3 to 10 pages and have previous experience writing personal essays or lifestories.
This course is designed for those with experience exposing their work in a writing workshop environment. Prospective students should contact the Studio for direction on submitting a work in progress. StoryStudio will then determine if the Advanced Essay Workshop or another course would be the best fit.
