The Most Personal Essay Section II

We’ve added another section of this popular class!

We’ll study, write, and workshop short essays that delve deeply into the first-person POV, focusing on structure, narrative voice, and scene in order to cultivate vulnerability without self-indulgence, pathos without sentimentality, sharing without oversharing. Students will receive one-on-one editorial advice as well as critique from fellow students as they prepare essays to submit for publication. Open to writers of all levels.

Please note: The first day of class has been rescheduled to Monday, January 18. The class will meet on Monday, February 15 to make up for the reschedule. 

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
