Course Description

In telling stories and drawing lessons from their lives, skilled essayists offer their readersĀ insight, artistry, self-critique, and honesty. They also take a reader on a thining journey.Ā 

Really good essays paint the portrait of a mind thinking and are always about something bigger than their author. The most successful of such texts reveal something not only about the writers but also about the reader.

In this class we will read the texts of expert practitioners of the essay form. We will also write and workshop our own.
