Getting Ready for the Mine Your Memories Event – Brush Up on Essay Writing

get-point

As some of you know, I am preparing to offer a Free Writing Event Mine You Memories: Find Your Voice Here. The course will not begin until October 1, 2016, and one reason is that October 1 is the one-year anniversary of the date that I began writing more seriously. Another reason for the postponed date is that I want everyone to have an opportunity to brush up on some basic writing skills before they begin telling their stories. To help with that Event, I have launched a new series of posts that will be categorized as “Get to the Point.” Tonight’s Get to the Point topic has to do with understanding what an essay actually is and how you write one.

As I said in another post, essay writing includes a wide range of writing types and styles. For the Mine Your Memories Event, I’ll be encouraging people to write a type of essay known as Creative Nonfiction, but before we get to that point, let’s talk about how the most basic type of essay is structured.
