For three years, Chuck Palahniuk contributed to our ground breaking online Writers Workshop (which he also helped build, btw) with 36 writing essays. These were lessons from a best-selling author on how to improve your craft as a writer... the types of lessons they teach in $20,000+ MFA writing programs.
To look back and celebrate these exclusive essays, each month we are "unlocking" one and offering it for free on the site. Normally you would need a Workshop Membership on the site to view these essays, but until you're ready to make that important commitment, we'll offer you one of these a month.
For February, we have Submerging the I, a favorite essay among Chuck's writing fans, which helps you discover the secret for making a first-person narrator less obtrusive. Enjoy!
