<b>Intensives</b>

alt=

How much can you learn in one day? Plenty. As you will discover in one of our One-Day Intensives in New York City.

The One-Day Intensives are seven-hour crash courses. You are immersed in a topic through a mixture of brief lectures that hit the high-points and writing exercises that let you immediately try your hand at what you’ve just learned.

The Intensives provide an excellent overview of their fields, ideal for both the beginner and someone wanting a quick refresher course. Arrive in the morning with a desire to learn. By the end of the day, you’ll be a more knowledgeable and skilled writer.

Students come from all over the world for our One-Day Intensives. You’re likely to be sitting near NYC locals as well as people from such far-flung places as Texas, Egypt, and Japan.

Intensives are open for writers of any level.

We offer an online version of an Intensive, a three-week Character course.

We also offers two and four-week seminars, including: How to Get Published, Hit Send: Publishing Short Nonfiction, How to Blog, and Nonfiction Book Proposal.

Students may reschedule a One-Day Intensive one time.

Personal Essay Writing
What do you think? If you can express yourself well enough, people will pay attention. The personal essay is a (usually) brief expression of viewpoint based on personal experience and observation. These essays grace most magazines and many newspapers, ranging from the sophistication of Joan Didion to the "regular-guy" take of Dave Barry. Personal essays are similar to memoir, but the emphasis is more on viewpoint than story, and they are much more personal in nature than those essays you wrote in school. In this course you'll learn how to gather ideas and utilize structure, voice, and style to create compelling personal essays. You will also learn how and where to market your work.
