The Experimental Essay

The essay is arguably the most elastic form of literature, at times allowing journalism, personal recollection, biography, and current events to coexist in a single space. But the essay needs containers to hold its matter which are as bendable and movable as its wide-ranging subjects. Through discussion, readings, and take-home exercises in these 1.5-hour classes, writers will stretch their own limits and explore new frontiers in nonfiction, finding that the methods to examine truth and facts are endless.
