Unearthing the Essay: Digging deep and owning your narrative with Ko Im via Zoom


Sunday, August 9, 2020
12:30 pm - 4:30 pm


The essay is a powerful tool of understanding oneself and sharing larger insights. This prompt-driven workshop will explore—and practice—the art of honest, conversational writing. Open to all those interested in personal essays and opinion pieces that highlight the human experience and show greater learnings about the lives we live.

NB: This class will be held on Zoom. There are two Altman Persons of Color Scholarship available for each one-day class on a first come, first served basis. Please let the Center know right away if your plans change and you can no longer attend the class so we can give the spot to another student of color. Thank you.

This workshop will be taught via Zoom. Login instructions will arrive via email at the time of workshop registration. Tickets for this 4hr intensive are $124. Please register at
