Nail Your College Essay—HIGH SCHOOL Grades 11-12
3 Mondays—Oct 16, 23, 30, 2017— 5-7 pm @ Local 64
The college essay means telling your personal story. Whether you traveled to Mongolia or never left the state, did Habitat for Humanity or cleaned your room, ate a cricket or an Oreo, that story, however exotic or mundane, is unique. But how you tell it is critical. This workshop is designed to teach students to explore what it means to take risks on the page and to tell their story with economy, skill, and authenticity. We will experiment with a variety of forms and narrative strategies using prompts from the Common Application, Ivy League colleges, and Write Mondays’ curriculum.
