Limited Capacity seats available

Who am I? Not only is it a topic that philosophers and rock 'n' roll poets have wrestled with for millennia, it's also the primary concern of personal essayists, who must find a way to capture their truest self on the page. Am I funny? Am I a tearjerker, or a jerk on a tear?

The goal is to complete several writing exercises that will help them find the best means of turning the stories of their lives into compelling, dynamic prose.
