One-Weekend Intensive: Enlarging the Personal Narrative

$195.00 Members
$255.00 Non-members

Have you ever worried your personal essays might be accused of “narcissism” or “navel-gazing”? Good news: You can write from your own life experience and still create work that speaks to a wide audience. In this intensive, you’ll learn techniques for making the personal essay more than just personal by layering in universal themes and expanding outside your own narratives to include elements of history, science, philosophy, politics, criticism, and other disciplines. We’ll learn from example and complete a miniworkshop exercise on a sample of our own work.
