In this class, we’ll study, write, and workshop short essays that delve deeply into the first person. We’ll focus on structure, narrative voice, and scene to cultivate vulnerability without self-indulgence, pathos without sentimentality, sharing without oversharing. We’ll use essays from The New York Times Magazine’s “Lives” and The New York Times’ “Modern Love” columns as models; at the end of the course, students will be encouraged to submit their essays to one or the other publication.
* 4/13 is a skip date; course is extended to Sunday, 5/4.
