I’m going to start offering online personal essay writing classes this spring. Here is a brief outline:
The most recognized writing advice has to be “Write what you know.” If you want to mine the depths of your personal experience on paper and see your name in print, then this is the class for you. As a published writer of personal essays, I will teach you how to: gather ideas, decide which stories to tell, structure your story, find your voice, get audience feedback through our supportive workshop environment and learn how to get published. By the end of this class you will have a saleable essay ready for submission.
The class for beginners to advanced writers will be offered in 6 week rotations starting March 1st. I will post or email my “lecture” for the week as well as a writing assignment to be turned in the following week. I will edit and offer my thoughts and suggestions on how to strengthen your essay. The class will cost $35.oo.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and/or have any questions.
