College Application Essay (Online Only)
The essay portion of the college application can be a source of anxiety, but it is really an opportunity to shine! MPH English teacher and NYTimes published essayist, Amy Doyle, can help demystify the process in this workshop that offers practical tips and individualized coaching. On day one, the full group will meet to review the essay topics offered on the Common Application, as well as examine sample essays of successful applicants to discern what works. On days 2-4, students will have individual conference time to brainstorm a story that college admissions officers have never read, creating an “image outline” for an essay that will bring to life their intelligence, humor, and tenderness. On day 5, students will tune up their drafts with direct instruction on how to start paragraphs, how to develop and connect ideas, how to create an appropriate and resonant tone, and how to brighten their writing with strong verbs and vivid details.

Students will leave the class with a completed essay. Max. 8 students.
