The Art of the Personal Essay [Beth Slattery]

Introductory / Intermediate | In an effort to better understand personal essays, we will study classic and contemporary essays and investigate uses of voice, characterization, description, humor, and structure in our own work. This course will include substantial discussion and a robust workshop. Students can expect to leave with a polished personal essay of 20 pages and extensive feedback from classmates and the instructor.
