Writing Creative Non-Fiction

Getting Personal: Navigating the Opportunities and Challenges of the Personal Essay

In this workshop, we'll delve into the personal essay form, examining what makes a strong and marketable piece. Drawing on one's own personal experience for writing material offers up unique opportunities as well as a number of pitfalls. Here, we'll look at writers who have used the "I" in a variety of ways to deepen their work and connect with readers. We'll also uncover some of the common pitfalls of the genre, and touch on the basics of the personal essay market as well as what to know before you publish.

Attendees will be expected to read two essays (to be emailed beforehand) in preparation for the class. Attendees should also come prepared with a short (2-3 pages) personal essay (or start to an essay) that we will discuss during the session.
