The personal essay thrives today because of its versatility of both subject and form. It can be funny, serious, scolding, or meditative. It can take the shape of a memoir or character sketch; book review or commentary; blog post or travel essay. In this workshop, we will practice writing the personal essay, then present drafts of our work for helpful feedback. We will also research and discuss markets for our finished pieces.
Carol LaChapelle teaches writing workshops in a variety of adult education and professional development venues throughout the Chicago area, including the Newberry, the Feltre School, and the Illinois Humanities Council.
