What's Included

Are you ready to get the college essay process started? Would you like to get motivated to write and receive solid instruction about how to write personal statements and essays that work for you and the colleges to which you’re applying? Do you have more time in the summer to be creative and productive? This course is a workshop focused on your college essay writing process. We’ll review writing prompts, read and discuss examples of “college essays that worked,” and write your own drafts, taking them through the process of topic selection, brainstorming, writing, peer review, and teacher response. As we discuss writing strategies, you will learn how to frame your life experiences and core values in a personal essay that uses your own authentic voice to express them. You can expect instruction, inspiration, and motivation. This course is designed with rising seniors in mind, but rising juniors are welcome to come learn and practice. Students will need pens and notebooks. June 10-14, 12:00-2:00 pm Dr. Jennifer Lovelace, SAA 204 contact: jlovelace@saa-sds.org 150.00
