Course DescriptionThis course guides you through elements of how to write a personal essay. It will help you investigate your longings, identify the values expressed in your stories, and bring readers into the experiences you describe. It focuses on viewpoints that are filtered through the lenses of your personal experiences. These essays will be quite different from the one you may have written in school; rather, they should feel personal and inspired by your unique voice and observations. In the process, you'll strengthen your own and your readers' interpretation of your life story. The course will help you in editing and preparation of your essay for publication.
