A personal essay is 3,000 percent easier to write than a short story, claims writer Carol Bly.
The essay is indeed a scalable form. In fact, this is our starting point for Writing Memoir: the personal essay. During this weekend, you’ll get the coaching to create a complete personal essay—from idea to first draft.
Working in this form can help you:
- access the personal stories that you want to tell
- learn more about literary structure and the memoir
- gain the confidence to actually finish a piece
- deploy your skill in memoir and fiction
Beginners and non-native speakers of English are welcome.
