This class is for writers who have written a draft of a personal essay and are interested in receiving and giving feedback, revising it, and submitting it for publication. Together we will examine several different types of essays, including opinion pieces, personal essays, and reported essays, as well as literary and commercial markets for publication. Through workshopping, we will hone and develop our essays for submission to literary magazines. Participants will leave with a finished essay and a list of markets accepting new work.
