About the event

"What makes essays last," Susan Sontag posits, "is less their argument than the display of a complex mind and a distinctive prose voice." In this class, we'll talk about the basics of personal essay writing and look at traditional and innovative forms. As we read work by essayists such as Roxane Gay, Hanif Abdurraqib, and Toni Jensen, we’ll discuss the techniques they use to create a lasting impression. Students will engage in writing exercises and work on their own essays. Everyone will have the opportunity to share. Click Here to Register!
