What Are College Admissions and Scholarship Essay Workshops? 

This workshop guides participants through preparing and revising a successful college admission or scholarship essay. Instructors will focus on Common Application essay prompts and techniques, but motivated participants may work on other prompts, such as for scholarships. Participants will receive individualized feedback and edits from local writing professionals, and work through multiple revisions of their essay.

**Come with or without a prepared essay! There will be lots of opportunity to brainstorm!**

Check back Spring 2023 for dates for our next Essay Workshop!
