Odyssey: Journal as Personal Essay

A journal is a personal space where it's safe to react to the world and interact with yourself. Using a multifocal approach, and a panorama of writing experiences, this course is designed to help you learn specific writing skills as you develop a writing habit in a safe and supportive environment. You'll be encouraged to record what you see, how you see it. Create questions. Think deep. Recover memories. Let loose. Take your brain to new places. Imagine. Discover. Gain insight. Don't edit. Break writer's block. Gain an appreciation for the possibilities of the journal through class discussions, writing prompts, and published entries by essayists, fiction writers, poets, neuroscientists, and other contemporary life watchers. Reflect. Use words. Be free. Have fun. Find yourself.
