Essays can be personal, theoretical, political, satirical, light-hearted, heavy with research, poetic or a mix. They can be so short that they look like a prose poem or ten thousand words long. Attracted by this open-ness and flexibility, many contemporary writers choose the essay form to explore a topic, think about some ideas or put forward a view. This course is a five-day intensive reading and writing opportunity to jump-start or extend your essay writing with practical support. You will be writing during the course, either continuing to develop the draft essay you bring along, or beginning a new one.
Who Should Attend?
Experiments with the Essay will suit writers who have experience in other forms like poetry or memoir or fiction and want to experiment with essays. It will also suit writers who have experience in professional or academic writing and have not previously tried a freer, more personal and more literary essay form.
