Introduction to the Personal Essay (Skype)

April 9, 16, 23, 30, 2019. 7:30-9:30pm EST. Margaret Atwood says, “If I waited for perfection… I would never write a word.” In this online workshop, we’ll practice writing imperfectly and learn new craft techniques and skills for revision. Using prompts, exercises, and examples from other essayists, we’ll play and experiment together in a warm, encouraging virtual environment. Come ready to write, and leave with tools to help you continue developing as an essayist.


It was a true pleasure to work with Meghan as the editor of my dissertation. Her work was careful, on-time, and surprisingly affordable even on a graduate student budget. Thanks to Meghan’s help, I finished and defended my dissertation on time while working at a new full-time job. I recommend her services highly and enthusiastically.

Meghan is the best. She has given attentive and thoughtful feedback on my book-length manuscript of essays, and created a warm, generous, and informative environment in a multi-session class that she taught on writing creative non-fiction. I look forward to working with her again soon.
