All Levels | As we reckon with our world in the midst of a pandemic and as we head into an election, you might have a thing or two to say. Craft that chapter in your memoir where the personal meets the political, that op-ed you have the authority to write, or that cultural critique for a literary journal. Learning from James Baldwin, Rebecca Solnit, Arundhati Roy, Lindy West, George Orwell, Mindy Kaling, and others, we will generate essays that tap into your own rage or your biting wit. Expect to leave with at least one strong essay and a pitch for an editor.
