What you'll learn in this essay writing class:

Everyone has a story. Now, it's time to share yours.

Personal essays expose what makes us human. From fundamental truths about life to stories that illustrate the sheer absurdity of the world around us, our experiences shape us and help better understand one another — and ourselves.

This class offers insight into the personal essay ideation process and will help writers draw out stories to craft into a narrative format. Open to all levels, we'll help you structure your essay and give you tips to make it as compelling as possible.

We'll cover:
  • What makes a standout personal essay.
  • Topic generation.
  • Elements of a personal essay.
  • Writing a great introduction.
  • General writing tips.
Bring a pen and paper as this class will involve brainstorming and ideation.

School Notes: OUTSIDE FOOD & DRINKS ARE NOT ALLOWED. QED has coffee, tea, soda, beer & wine plus snacks and pre-made wraps and sandwiches available.

Refund Policy
We require at least seven (7) days' notice before a class in order to issue a refund and there are no transfers to future classes allowed. We're a small operation and purchase our own supplies and keep classes extremely affordable, so we have to operate this way just to stay in business.

But, all is not lost, tickets are transferable meaning we will allow anyone to take your place in class, so check around with your friends to see if someone else would like your spot.

In case of bad weather, classes WILL always take place unless the subway system is closed down. If you have issues traveling, please keep this in mind when you purchase your ticket. If we do cancel for weather or an emergency, we will try to reschedule the class on the same day of the week at the same scheduled time as soon as possible. If you cannot make the rescheduled date, we will refund you the price of your seat.
