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 explore how to capture the tone of each publication while staying true to your voice—and your stories—as we work on the first drafts of our own essays. Students will bring copies of their completed essays to class each week, where they will read them aloud and receive on-the-spot feedback in brief workshop sessions. At the end of the class, students will leave with a path forward to possible publication on half a dozen essay drafts.
