Personal Essays: Beyond Your Journal to Publication
What does it means to tell one’s story? If you’re lucky, maybe small, seemingly insignificant matters are most striking: your brother’s daydreaming; how you couldn’t sit still as a child; your son’s strange aversion to gummy textures and sauces. For many others, it’s the life-defining moments that mold character and strength, fusing past, present and future.

We write. Sometimes with humor, sometimes with raw pain, always interesting. It’s all part of your personal essay.

This isn’t journaling. It’s writing tight, personal essay fit for publication.
