by Donneva Crowell
Bookmark and Share

Fresh Yarn is a continuously updated web site that features essays by amateur and professional writers - some famous and some not-so-famous. The updated "installments" and archived editions of Fresh Yarn are like an online volume of essays on many different subjects. They are great resources for teaching college-level essay writing and characteristics of different types of essays: descriptive, observation, memoir, argument and so forth. The selected essay - "Grand Union" - was used to illustrate the characteristics inherent in a profile/memoir essay, where the class (as a group) analyzed the essay pararaph by paragraph to understand its structure, language, and other concepts important to writing a profile and/or memoir type essay.
