Meaning Making

and Personal Essay
Tuesdays 9:30 - 11:30 am PST
February 7 thru March 14

6 weeks/ $350

The art and craft of the personal essay pivots on the question--What does it mean? Essay, as a genre, opens the door to exploration,  investigation and questioning. What does my personal experience mean in the context of the rest of the wide world? Probing for answers and making connections is what brings meaning to essay making. Each week we'll read and discuss thought-provoking essays by writers such as Kiese Laymon. Marilynne Robinson, Jesmyn Ward,  Beth Nguyen, Hilton Als and others. Through freewrites and facilitated workshops, we'll see how our personal experiences intersect with society and the environment and discover what that means. You will receive supportive feedback from your peers and written feedback from me. For creative nonfiction writers with workshop experience.
