Essay Workshop

Essay Workshop
Crafting the Personal Essay
with Eva Feeley


Forget the Persuasive Essays you wrote in high school - with their dozens of creativity-destroying rules!

A 5-week course, beginning:
Wednesday, October 20th
10am-12pm at the
Sea Isle City Library

Please be sure to provide a valid email address during registration, in order share essays and ideas between classes.

Registration is limited, required, and open now.

The Personal Essay is a wonderfully flexible form that we can use to record our most important thoughts, as time-honored authors have done for centuries.
During the sessions, we will discuss tips to create more compelling pieces, and we will share as many stories with each other as time will allow. Input and friendly, constructive critique will be encouraged.
Together, we’ll explore and craft our own memoir, contemplative, lyric, and spiritual essays. By the end of the series, the essence of who you are will have emerged for your own deeper understanding of your life.

Please bring a pen and notebook, as we will be writing in class.
