Personal essays are the big sister of blog posts. Blog posts can begin and end with an anecdote, whereas an essay provides the reader with an insight or change that occurred. Good essays include a strong lead, struggle, appropriate pacing, story arc, rich details, and an alluring voice. This class will explain all of these components and teach you how to use them effectively in order to craft an essay worth submitting for publication.
