The Art of the Personal Essay
The personal essay is a unique blend of storytelling, lessons, and poetry. Not quite memoir, not quite self-help, it’s a form that lends itself to blogs, essays for magazines, or opinions for newspapers. In this workshop we’ll look at the structural foundation of the personal essay, as well as learn some simple tools to help authors use their life experiences as limitless source material. Most importantly, we’ll dig into how best to offer readers lessons without being dogmatic or obvious, so that our essays can be both entertaining and inspiring.

 

This class runs from Wednesday, January 8th through Wednesday, February 12th, 2020, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Classes are held at the Writers' Cottage  (317 NW Gilman Village, Ste #8, Issaquah, WA)

Price: $200 for current PNWA Members; $300 for Nonmembers
