Writing the College Application Essay

Need some expert advice as you polish that essay? Lacking motivation to get started? Providence Day Upper School English Department Chair Dr. Clint Crumley teaches a workshop that will not only produce at least two full-length essays but will also heighten your writing skills in general. Sessions will include strategies on finding the best topics, on achieving a distinctive voice, and on writing that one dazzling sentence that suggests ”strong writer” to college admissions staff. Workshop size will be limited, in order for students to benefit from one-on-one attention. Students will finish the week with completed college essays, a refreshed sensitivity toward syntax and rhetoric, and merited confidence as writers heading into the school year.
