For five centuries, the personal essay has flourished as the genre of discovery, driven by the writer’s own habit of inquiry and attention.

As individual and curious as the writer’s own mind, the personal essay reflects Montaigne’s maxim that ‘Every man has within himself the entire human condition’.

This interactive workshop invites you to chart your own thinking and experience in non-fiction’s most versatile form of writing. Each week you will be reading and commenting on one another’s work. This forms the core of the workshop experience. You will receive tailored written feedback from the tutor on the pieces you write throughout the course.
