For the first essay in this course, you will practice your personal narrative-writing skills.
After reading some sample personal essays and viewing a personal essay performance from The Moth, begin thinking about a brief, true story from your own life that might engage a reader and tell him/her something important about you. This story could be of a person, place, event, or even an object that holds special significance in your life. It could be about a difficult or amazing experience you’ve had, or about a time when you learned something new about yourself or the world (big or small).
In a 3-4 page essay, tell your story.
To make your narrative clear and interesting to a reader, be sure to use plenty of details, and include some meaningful reflection about the impact of these events in your life.
This is a “creative” essay, so it’s acceptable to use contractions, the words “I” or “you,” and to generally be more playful with language. The organization for this essay is also less formal; there are many different ways to arrange a story (as long as you’re clear and have an overall point).
As with any essay in this class, your writing should be detailed, carefully edited, and should show attention to grammar and mechanics.
Your final version should be typed, double-spaced, and formatted in MLA style.
