Structuring the Lyric Essay

All Levels | Is your essay or memoir in-progress not coming together structurally? You are not alone! This class will serve as a welcome space to brainstorm and troubleshoot this common challenge. Students will read multigenre works from writers who push the boundaries of storytelling, such as Maggie Nelson, Hanif Abdurraqib, Claudia Rankine, Mary Ruefle, Solmaz Sharif, and Elissa Washuta. Classes will be structured around a one-hour workshop of student essays followed by a discussion of assigned text.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
