The Personal Essay, a Writing Workshop with Morgan McVicar, HKS MC/MPA 2003 and Writing Consultant

In a personal essay, the writer draws on his/her own experiences to craft a political or social argument or simply evoke emotion.

This workshop will focus on how to use detail, texture and subtlety in drawing on a particular experience to discover the wisdom, humor, sadness and/or truth about the human condition. We will analyze several essays to illustrate how your experiences, whether momentous or seemingly insignificant, can be the stuff of a powerful essay.
