From Blog to Essay

Personal essays are the big sister of blog posts. Blog posts can begin and end with an anecdote, whereas an essay provides the reader with an insight or change that occurred. Good essays include a strong lead, struggle, appropriate pacing, story arc, rich details, and an alluring voice. This class will explain all of these components and teach you how to use them effectively in order to craft an essay worth submitting for publication.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
