Personal Essay [Sallie Tisdale]
Essay is an audacious and willowy form, subjective in its essence, partaking of memory, observation, critical thinking, intuitive leaps, and plain research. This class is designed to deepen our understanding of what a personal essay can do and be. We will consider questions about voice, what it means to use personal material, and how to combine the individual and global point of view. Class will include writing, reading, and discussion.
