4-Week Essay Bootcamp
Now Accepting Students!
Upcoming: 4-Week Essay Bootcamp
This class begins on Saturday, August 13th, 2022 and ends on September 3, 2022. Classes are held weekly on Zoom, Saturdays from 11am-1:30pm EST.
You're out of shape, bored of the same routine, or simply haven’t had the time to keep that promise you made to yourself months ago to make writing a priority. You’re stuck, in other words, in one way or in several. You need that extra push. Welcome to Essay Bootcamp. Over the course of this 4-week class, we’ll sweat our way back into the writing chair and work our way up to heavy lifting—of pencils and of thought—through a dozen new and generative exercises guaranteed to jump-start a winter of writing. Shaped closely by in-class discussions of a wide variety of both contemporary and canonical essayistic forms, our exercises will target point-of-view, chronology, form, voice, and structure, we'll flex our creative muscles daily through the creation of new and meaningful work. By the end of our time together, students will have the beginning framework of a dozen new essays and deep connections with fellow writers with whom they can share and discuss future work well beyond our time together.
This workshop is for writers of all backgrounds and skill levels who want to learn more about the contemporary essay and leave with the framework for dozens of new essays. Focus will be on generating new material.
