Unlocking the Essay
Taught by Katie Cugno
A two-week workshop
Open to 12 students, ages 13–18
July 22–29
Sundays, 3–5 p.m.

Do essay assignments make you anxious? Or at the very least unexcited? Do you feel like there's a secret someone is not letting you in on when it comes to analytical writing assignments? This workshop is designed to help students find and grow confidence in their writing process. We will explore different approaches to the writing process, and start by connecting how we organize writing to how we organize speaking (in conversations). In the second session we will practice writing an analytical essay through discussion and analysis of song lyrics or a piece of kids' poetry. Students will walk away feeling more confident about their writing process, and more ready to tackle those essays in the fall.
