Writing Big Ideas

Have you ever wanted to write about a big, important topic, but didn't know where to start? In this workshop, we'll look at examples of "Exhibit Essays," where an author uses a specific and approachable "exhibit" in order to talk about something bigger and deeper. Then we'll try using "exhibits" to tackle big ideas in our own writing.
