What you'll learn in this essay writing class:

Using fun in-class exercises, we’ll help you transform your bad blind dates and visits from unruly parents into insightful, compelling revelations. We will help you dig deep into your treasure trove of personal experience to find the literary diamond in the rough that you can polish into a hilarious, relatable and tantalizing gem. You’ll even get a private meeting to get final notes on your piece and figure out where to send it. By the end of class, you’ll have a kick-ass essay that is ready to be submitted for publication and a plan where to submit it. Your goal will be to sell your essay within a couple of weeks after the class ends!
