Just starting your essay or trying to perfect a draft? This class will help you move forward. Learn how to choose an appropriate topic, ensure that your response reveals something essential about you, and make your writing shine. This class will address all application essays: Common Application, supplementary questions, and "Why Us?" prompts.

In the first half of this fast-paced session, we will discuss specific prompts, learn how to structure essay responses, and cover practical strategies for revising drafts. The second half will be devoted to applying what we learned and 1:1 conferences and Q & A with the teaching artist, so students can get feedback based on specific prompts and their stage in the writing process.
