In this fun, intensive class, writers will produce six short essays (around 750 words each) in six weeks, with an eye on producing work targeted to specific magazines and websites that routinely publish short creative nonfiction. Each week, we'll read model texts centered on a common theme (such as relationships, food, travel, and health) from consumer publications like the Boston Globe, Runner's World, Writer's Digest, and the New York Times. Then, we'll strive to capture the tone of each publication while staying true to our own voice -- and our own stories -- as we work on the first drafts of our own essays. Students will get real-time feedback each week in brief workshop sessions, and will leave the final class with a path forward to possible publication on half a dozen essay drafts.

I had a great experience at Grub Street and would recommend it to anyone! The small class size was perfect for facilitating meaningful discussion. The instructor presented us with relevant texts and great feedback. I was also really impressed with my classmates. Not only was their writing exceptional, but each member was a close reader and provided really valuable insight. Overall awesome!
