Essay Writing: Truth & Culture
Essay Writing: Truth & Culture

Essays in their myriad forms are everywhere -- blogs, books of poetry, newspapers, digital magazines, and emerging publications of every kind. Arguably our most contemporary form, combining the immediacy and intimacy of a personal voice with the exploration of broader themes, essays written and read in this course will push into cultures’ most vulnerable corners, seeking to reveal--not necessarily shock--the reader with the truth and to challenge the writer to produce their best and perhaps most difficult work to date.

What you will learn
  • How to write personal observations and experiences into matters of broader, general import and urgency
  • Key techniques and forms employed by a range of contemporary essayists
  • You will work with others in a collaborative supportive workshop environment, challenging one another to produce works of greater clarity and impact
  • You will work with deadlines and feedback to complete your projects in a timely fashion
