Short Essays for the Internet

All Levels | Whether they are expository, personal, or reported, internet publications are seeking clear, compelling short essays. In this workshop, we will cover how to identify your specialty themes, and how to outline and write short essays about single issues (750–1,000 words) including a call to action. We will discuss different short essay forms and when to choose each, how to find publications to fit your interests, and how to tailor your writing to publications you admire. Students will practice pitches and leave with lots of homework, because practice is what is needed to succeed.
