The personal essay is an intimate journey in which the writer is exploring a nonfiction subject of interest. The success of a personal essay is dependent on the writer’s ability to create  a universal appeal. In this four-week course, students will identify how and why a specific personal essay appeals to a larger audience. Students will create a list of essay topics and together we will choose one of those topics to begin developing into a polished essay for future publication.
