Learn to write a dynamic, memorable college essay! In a small, personalized class, discover what colleges value in college essays. Brainstorm original topics, draft your essays, and receive regular, skillful feedback from your instructor.
College Essay Camp can ease fears, break writing blocks, and help students find their stories. In a fun, collaborative environment, we will learn the principles of effective essays, study successful models, generate many ideas in order to find our best material, draft essays, and receive feedback. Students will not only feel more confident and inspired about their essays, but gain writing strategies they can use the rest of their lives. The class will be capped at 12 students - enough that we will have a wealth of ideas and perspectives - but small enough to ensure personalized attention from the instructor every day. If you have been asking yourself how to answer UC prompts, how to write the common app essay, or how to write a scholarship essay, then this class is for you! Your instructor earned in MA in Education from Stanford and her MFA in Creative Writing from the Rainier Writing Workshop. She is a certified high school teacher and a published writer, with a specialty in the personal essay.
