Ever wonder how to write one of those short but thought-provoking essays that appear in places such as The New York Times “Modern Love” column? In a fun and relaxed setting, learn the tools to create short, publishable narrative essays — narrative arc, plot, theme, character development, catchy beginnings and endings — in five pages or less. Read and discuss sample published essays; write your own essay; receive helpful feedback from the instructor and classmates; learn to edit your own work with a specific audience in mind. Remember: Writing is editing, and no sentence comes out perfect the first time.
