Crafting the Experimental Essay
There is not one right way to write an essay, and in this course, students will bend the genre of nonfiction by playing with an array of essay forms such as lyric and personal. We will discuss and practice taking events from our lives and whittling them into inventive and dynamic nonfiction. Students will be given a box of tools that will be invaluable to their craft leave palpably excited about creating narratives out their lives.

CHLOE CALDWELL is the author of the essay collection, "Legs Get Led Astray" (Future Tense Books, April 2012) and the e-book "The New Age Camp" (Thought Catalog, 2012).

Her nonfiction has appeared or is forthcoming in Salon, The Rumpus, Thought Catalog, Nylon, The Nervous Breakdown, xoJane, The Frisky, The Sun Magazine, SMITH, Jewcy, Mr. Beller's Neighborhood, Vol 1. Brooklyn, Freerange Nonfiction, The Faster Times, The Fix, Men's Health, and the anthology: Goodbye To All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving NYC (Seal Press).

She is the founder and curator of the Hudson River Loft Reading Series and has taught Creative Writing workshops at Omega Teen Camp, The Hudson Opera House, and Crow Arts Manor. Chloe lives in Portland, Oregon.
