Publications like Slate, Salon, Creative Nonfiction, The Sun, and The New York Times pay to publish personal essays. Take time to craft your story and learn where and how to submit it in this nonfiction workshop.
Over four classes, we will focus on the craft of personal essay writing, read selections from award-winning contemporary authors, respond to prompts, get feedback on our own writing and, finally, research and submit to at least one market.
