The Makery: Essays that Open Doors with Jim Minick
Got a book coming out? Better write an op-ed. Want to find an editor or agent? Try writing an essay. Whatever we write, fiction, poetry, or nonfiction, the essay in its many forms opens other doors, especially to more readers. This class will explore some of the options and rationales as well as specific forms, like the op-ed, the crossover, flash, and the origin story.
Class will meet from 10:00-12:00 (Noon) PM EST
