Online Advanced Essays & the Persona Narrator (Virtual)

Do you live with realities that shock, delight, implore you? Do you have expertise, confusions, curiosities, appreciations, denunciations that you want to share in a way that others can hear?

In this 8-week class, we will look at published works by notable essayists to see how their use of persona narrator and other elements of craft help them both to live into their material and to welcome the reader. This class is open to students who have taken three terms of Online Essays and the Persona Narrator.

This class will be conducted via video chat for eight Saturdays from 10:30 am - 12:30pm Pacific Time.
