Course Description

Personal essays are some of my favorite things to read and write. When done well, they can reach genuine levels of depth and beauty. They are a bit like poetry in many ways because they hold a magnifying glass up to something and turn it around, mull on it, ultimately helping the reader see it in a new way.

This is such a gorgeous art form.

Students have course access for 365 days. All worksheets and notes are downloadable.
