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.
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.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
