      Braided, experimental, and hermit crab

      Yishun Lai

      In this generative workshop, we’ll explore three unconventional essay formats: The braided essay, the experimental essay, and the hermit crab essay. The braided essay marries two or more stories to create one strong narrative. The experimental essay is the essay that takes on unconventional form. And the hermit crab essay is the essay that looks like one thing, but actually is another.
