Sometimes the smallest moment—or the shortest essay—holds the greatest revelation. In this class you will write six personal essays between 500 and 1,000 words. You’ll generate a lot of material, explore challenges in style and voice, and take a fresh look at your life experience. By working in a shorter format, you’ll also find ways to tighten your prose and heighten your storytelling skills. Each week you will bring a finished essay into class for presentation and discussion. We will also read and discuss published essays, looking at what they can teach us about the art of essay writing. Authors read may include, but are not limited to: Roxane Gay, Ira Sukrungruang, Jenny Boully, Brian Doyle, and many more.

This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.

For a glimpse at how remote learning works, look no further than the deep Zoom discussion of writing and literature below:
