What do you know about your life? One way to find out is to write short essays on things such as (1) an event from your childhood, (2) a dramatic life-event (3) something you are dealing with now or have dealt with recently, (4) an important decision that changed your life. The class will consist of some discussion and writing exercises but most of the time will be devoted to providing feedback to each person about how their essay is written. Most people who take this class gain insights into their own lives and a deep appreciation for the other people in the class. Register only if you are committed to attending every session of the class, writing weekly essays, and are open to receiving constructive feedback about your writing. You will also need to be able to email your essays to the other students in the class.
