The Writing the Personal Essay Sorority Sisters

These talented writers met in one of my essay workshops. The personal essay is so personal that it can help you make friends for life. From left to right meet Gina Sorell, Camerone Thorson, behind her is Terry August and the one at the right is Dr. Jeanne Kane. They meet at least once a year. Maybe someday I will join them.
