Crush Your College Admission Essay

August 5-6, 2019
MONDAY, Aug 5 9am-3pm
TUESDAY Aug 6 9am-noon

Many incoming Seniors dread writing the College Essay and feel it’s a weight hanging over them.  I love not only guiding students through the process, but opening them to the idea that writing this essay is a wonderfully creative narrative expression of who they are at a pivotal point in their lives.

Crush the College Essay will be a two day workshop where participants write and revise one college essay. Participants should come prepared with one college essay prompt.
        • Participants will review stellar college essay examples in addition to hearing what college admissions teams are looking for in the writing.
        • They will be guided through the prewriting process for the essay.
        • Time will be spent with one one one consultation during the revision and editing process.
        • Peer editing will also be facilitated in a workshop setting.
        • Participants will leave the workshop with a solid essay.
There will be an opportunity to schedule a private consultation for any interested participants.
