You: a human. In Chicago. Wishing to learn how to shape your personal experience into compelling prose. Or a person who's got some experience with personal essay/narrative looking to sharpen your stuff.
Weekly assignments, detailed feedback.
If you need a fire under your butt, and respond to the motivation that only deadlines and a regular convening of colleagues can provide, this class is for you.
I have years of experience teaching this stuff. I have years of experience as a storyteller of personal narratives. I have helped scores of Chicagoans to refine their stories, build their confidence, and hone their skills.
If you suspect you have literary chops, this is for you. If you wonder "do I have storytelling chops?" this is for you.
