SHARING OUR STORIES: Writing Essays that Sell with JoBeth McDaniel

Do you have a true story you’d like to share with the world? Journalist and author JoBeth McDaniel will guide you in techniques she used to craft essays for numerous publications, including several republished in anthologies and in college textbooks. We’ll study openings and endings, brainstorm your ideas, then get you started on a rough draft, with handouts and guidance on where to send your finished work.
