On writing personal essays

This is kind of dated, but I just came across it and found it to be an insightful read on what it’s like to write personal essays… which is, you know, what 95% of the stuff on Musings entails.


What the heck is this place?

Do you have an idea for a blog post or a freelance article, or even a finished draft? Are you looking for some direction or general feedback? Then this is the place for you!

The goal of this workshop is to create a supportive environment where we can:

  1. Develop our writing technique and style, focusing not just on what to write, but also how to write it.
  2. Critique our writing in a transparent, constructive manner.
  3. Share our experiences and knowledge with each other.

The group consists mostly of internet writers, but feel free to ask for feedback on any other writing endeavors you may have. And if you know someone who might be interested in joining, please send them our way!

I think everything on here is pretty straightforward. If you have something you’d like feedback on, post it! At this point, the only requisite to post and comment is that you have a account. If you need to register, you can do so here.

Once you’ve registered and logged in, please comment on this post, and I can add you as a member of the workshop.

For now, I’m keeping the workshop open to the public (but hidden from search engines), so people can check it out and decide if they want to join. In the near future, I’ll be making it private, so that you’ll have to be a member of the workshop to access it.
