The Art of the Essay description
A well-crafted essay can pack a real punch – be a potent narrative, or an illuminating portrait, or make an important contribution to a debate. It enables long-form investigations or interrogations of subjects in ways that can set agendas or be intimacy-fuelled expositions. Leading Australian writers Sophie Cunningham (City of Trees), Charlotte Wood (The Weekend, The Writer’s Room) and Ashley Hay (Griffith Review) discuss the craft behind and impact of a good essay.
