The Humble Essayist by Steve Harvey

THE  is a website devoted to the personal essay and the reflective memoir, forms that use the personal to shine a light on a truth that speaks to us all.  Our main feature is the “Paragraph of the Week.”  Every Friday we choose a single paragraph from the work of a renowned or promising writer and display it on the front page of the site beside commentary by The Humble Essayist.  The commentary pays attention to the craft of the paragraph—celebrating the beauty of the author’s stylistic choices—but also shows how that paragraph embodies and serves the theme that the author is exploring.
