The Thinking-Work of Essays

Monday, April 22, 2024 at 12:00 PM until 1:00 PMEastern Daylight Time UTC -04:00

What makes an essay an essay? It’s the thinking work – the way the writer does more than just tell a story but uses that story to (as Andre Aciman says) speculate, explore, propose, and reconsider some kind of thought, argument, or idea.

In this session essayist and Goucher faculty member Randon Billings Noble discusses the difference between memoir and essay, examines the way different essayists think on the page, and then does a few exercises to spark some thinking work of your own.
