The Memoirist's Personal Essay

The personal essay is a gentle art, an idiosyncratic combination of the author’s discrete sensibilities and the endless possibilities of meaning and connection.  The essay is graceful, wise, and always surprising.  The essay invites extreme playfulness and almost endless flexibility.

Or as Annie Dillard has written of the essay form:

“There’s nothing you cannot do with it; no subject matter is forbidden, no structure is proscribed.  You get to make up your own structure every time, a structure that arises from the materials and best contains them.  The material is the world itself, which, so far, keeps on keeping on.”

Each of us has a miraculous mind full of associations, ideas, and richly remembered experiences.  Let me guide you to tips and ideas to capture them and record them the best way possible!

Coming soon: July 14 summer workshop!
