Borrowing geometric, irregular, and architectural shapes, this two-hour class introduces several essay structures to writers interested in creative nonfiction, particularly the art of the essay. From linear to braided, narrative to lyrical, this class covers a multitude of possible storytelling pathways for the writer and entryways for the reader. Essayists who want to build a dynamic collection or oeuvre, or who want to add an element of play, a layer depth, or a touch of creativity to their writing practice, or journalists venturing into creative nonfiction are all encouraged to join.
