Personal Essay Writing: A Way to Make Meaning of Your Life

ID : 7118   
« back to classes page
According to Socrates, “[t]he unexamined life is not worth living.”  This course will help you not only examine your life but also write about it.  We all have stories — good ones, funny ones, scary ones and unsettling ones.  But what do they mean and what do they tell us about our world?  Through writing about your life, recounting it, and analyzing it, you will find the wisdom in it.  The personal essay — a form that calls on the author to take small experiences and mine them for the universal truths — is the perfect vehicle to teach us lessons about life.  The instructor will prompt your writing exploration, gently supporting and encouraging you to prepare a short essay for each class.
