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 evening classes, writers will stretch their own limits and explore new frontiers in nonfiction, finding that the methods to examine truth and facts are endless.

if taking multiple classes, price is reduced to $20/class
