Shane Peterson– Thursdays, Apr 7 – May 12, 6:30pm-8:00pm (In-person)


From Michel de Montaigne to James Baldwin to Joan Didion, essay writing has a rich and storied history. Despite its negative associations with school papers, essays require a surprising amount of creativity, allowing for a wide range of styles and topics that the writer can freely explore. So for this class, we will learn more about this underappreciated literary genre by reading the works of other essayists and composing our own, which may include (but are not limited to) personal essays, lyrical essays, opinion editorials, blog posts, and other texts we frequently engage with in our day-to-day lives.
