The Lyric Essay

Course description

The lyric essay exists in an undefined space between poetry and non-fiction. By breaking the rules of genre and experimenting with hybrid forms, students in this class can expect to breathe new life into stagnant essays, develop poetic lines into thoughtful arguments, and to take their non-fiction to new creative places. In addition to writing prompts and workshops, we’ll be exploring the genre through excerpts and essays from John D’Agata, Eula Biss, Sarah Manguso, and Claudia Rankine, among others.


This six-week Frequency Writers class will be taught at School One in Providence.


Mondays, March 18, 2019 to April 29, 2019 (no class April 15) from 6:30pm - 9:00pm
