Course Description

Students will learn how to compose a story that evokes an emotion in the reader. These true narratives are always inspirational, often poignant, and frequently humorous. Mastering the personal essay benefits writers whose goal is publication because many venues remain receptive to this genre. Each session, we will prepare a three hundred-word piece or discuss each other's writing in a helpful way. We'll analyze what works and what doesn't. Students will proceed from being oral storytellers to genuine writers. All will be encouraged to submit their stories for publication in Chicken Soup for the Soul (CSftS) or similar publications and will be provided with publication deadlines for CSftS.  Lecture (plus Questions), Facilitated Discussion, Active Participation, Writing
