NEW! The College Essay

(ages 15-18)

Are you struggling to write your college essay, unsure of where to begin? In this two-hour overview, Lisa Hartsgrove of Project Write Now will discuss what makes a standout essay, how to structure your essay, and basic writing skills to get by. We will brainstorm ideas so each student can come up with a topic of their own, write their topic sentence, and begin an outline to get started. Students will have quiet time at the end of class to work individually on their essays. At any point, they can receive immediate feedback from the instructor. We will also provide sources for further help and development, if needed. The earlier you finish your essay, the more time you have to make improvements. College is right around the corner. You can never be too prepared!
