IFW Essay to My Younger Self Workshop


Out of stock



Who doesn’t have a piece of wisdom we wish we could tell our younger self? Being able to turn those nuggets of advice into publishable essays is one way to create a little side hustle with your writing.

In this workshop, IFW Instructor Susan Ludwig explores what editors are looking for in personal essays and how to connect with your reader while critiquing the winning entries from the recent IFW Essay to My Younger Self Contest!

Plus, you’ll get to ask questions during our live Q&A. Can’t make it live? We’ve got you covered. A limited-time replay will be available within a few days of the live event.

Join us September 14th at 8pm ET/5pm PT!
