How to Write a Compelling Personal Essay That Sells

By admin

Saturday, October 13

12-2 PM
KSU Center, Room 300

In this 2-hour class we’ll explore the myriad forms of the personal essay – from lyrical and braided essays, to prose poems, flash essays, op-eds and hybrid essays that incorporate research and reporting. We’ll talk about how to “hook” an editor with your opening lines, come up with a “message” or “lesson,” and how to build compelling narratives in both long-form and short-form pieces. Later, we’ll talk about two possible sources of inspiration for personal essay-writing, and do a writing exercise that pulls together everything we’ve discussed.  Join us and register here.
