The personal essay has been undergoing a resurgence of interest and experimentation in recent decades. The options are exciting! In this course, you will write (or re-write) a short (500- to 1,000-word) essay each week and participate in multiple shorter exercises. To focus on craft, we will read a variety of essayists and look at how they use the writer’s toolkit of image, voice, language, narration, and structure. Participants will engage with the Waterfall Arts gallery exhibits during classtime, using various pieces for inspiration. Whether you are a beginner or a published author, this class will help you move your writing to the next level. We will look at diverse essay forms including lyric, flash, braided, segmented, and experimental. Whatever your favorite subject is, you will walk away with ideas for your next drafts and finished work.
