The word "essay" means to try, to weigh, to consider. This intermediate level class will immerse you in the art of the essay and provide you with the tools and guidance you need to generate 5 new essays in 6 weeks. We'll explore various types of essays, read and discuss the work of master essayists and, most importantly, provide a space for you to weigh, consider, and try your hand at essay writing.
This class takes place remotely online via Zoom.
