College Essay Writing
Our goal when guiding students through the college essay writing process is to help them tell their stories in ways that communicate what is truly unique about them. To achieve this, we begin by taking them through a process of self-reflection, allowing them to see the storylines of their own lives in a new light. We then support students through the challenge of translating these life stories into substantive narratives that are sure to engage, inspire, and move prospective readers.
This summer, we will be offering two day-long College Essay Writing Workshops, one in June and one in July. These workshops are meant to help students kick off their college essay writing process with confidence and direction. During these workshops, students will generate potential essay topics and get help identifying those with the most promise. We will then explore how students can to turn these best ideas into full fledged essays.
For students who want in-depth help with the writing process, we will be available for customized, one-on-one support.
