Workshop: In This Essay, I Will

Sat 10 Sep, 10am

How do you weave together ideas, technique and tone into a captivating essay collection? Critically acclaimed essayist Eda Gunaydin guides you through the art of shaping a collection of your work, from posing a central inquiry and working a throughline into a manuscript, to building coherence through theme and voice and crafting individual essays using hybrid forms like theory and memoir. Gunaydin shares insight from her own craft as a writer and critic of class, race and diaspora, and the process of publishing her recent essay collection Root & Branch.
