The Essay in 8 Steps

Many writers have a difficult time balancing exposition with forward moving action,
especially with the rumination required in creative non-fiction.  This class is a hands-on writing class where I will teach the eight-step concept and then prompt writers to follow it on the subject of their own choice. This class teaches how to get into a rhythm of detailed setting observation, physical observation, and internal observation—touching on each for a beat—while also moving the essay forward in time.  Writers will leave with a new formula for writing that allows more balance of the external with the internal, and an understanding of the methodology behind this formula.  This workshop allows writers to immediately learn and then apply the technique to their own projects.  Your creativity sparks will fly!
