I appreciate how open-ended the essay format is, particularly in an online era. A headline establishes what you’re setting out to do, and if people click on it, you’ve got buy-in to make your case. While the format of my Front Row Seat column in the Duluth News Tribune varies, I often use that space to write essays about different aspects of local life. In other publications — including The Tangential and The Current — I’ve written essays on a wide range of topics.
