CourseGraphic Five Week Prose Workshop: Windows, Doors, and Floors: Writing an Essay
Windows, Doors, and Floors: Writing an Essay
A 5-week workshop. Week by week, part by part, you’ll explore a subject for an essay that you work on and revise in pieces. You’ll craft windows through which you’ll investigate something, you’ll find the doorway in and out, you’ll locate the ceiling and stretch the essay or memoir chapter as far as it can go, and in the process, you’ll assemble your drafts and process work into a full essay.

Short writing prompts that invite you to think about character/persona, research, arc, texture, and emotional heat will be “workshopped” and talked about during our time together. These exercises are explorations in process. You’ll build the pieces into a finished draft that we’ll discuss during our last class. In this workshop, you’ll generate new material and receive verbal feedback that helps you construct and shape a brand-new essay for your final class.

May 21 to June 18, 2024 
Tuesdays, 11:00am to 1:00pm EST

“I was always looking forward to this class, and I am sad it is over!I enjoyed the prompts, I enjoyed the discussions, and I enjoyed the community that Tyler did such a lovely job crafting. I feel like I have gained much more confidence in my writing.” - former student

“I’ve really seen myself grow in terms of ability to produce self reflective pieces; things like focusing on carnal details, allowing myself to be vulnerable, and experimenting with dialogue has helped expand my writing tool kit.” - former student

“Thank you for a wonderful and inspiring class. I really enjoyed it. My main goal was to jumpstart my writing again and set the goal to complete my memoir and begin the publishing phase. This class was the push I was looking for and needed.” - former student
