This class is full
Over the course of six weeks, writers in this intensive class will produce six essays (about 1,000 words each). Each week we will look at a model essay, including, but not limited to, genres such as flash nonfiction, op-ed, and personal narrative. Students will respond to prompts based on the works we read, and each student will have a concentrated, 30-minute workshop on at least one essay during the six week session. Students will also have the option to share their essay every week via a shared GoogleDrive, for their classmates to leave comments on. At the end of the class, students will leave with a sizable body of work as well as advice on how to pursue possible publication of their half-a-dozen essay drafts.  

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.
