Essay Workshops

Two 2-hour group sessions followed by an individual one hour final session. At the conclusion the students will:

  • Have a completed main essay that can be submitted for the Common Application or Coalition Application colleges.

  • The student will understand why the essay needs to be a story about them. They will understand that the essay is not about a static topic, but rather, that they are writing about an experience and what they learned / gained from it.

  • During the sessions, we will discuss understanding the concepts of “knowing your audience”, that the "application essay is a story about you” and that every writer has a unique writing voice.

  • Topics of a personal or sensitive nature are only discussed between the student and consultant. 

  • For some students, this may mean working on their essay outside of the group sessions.

  • Cost is $250. Spaces are limited.
