Look for this workshop
next season!

So, you’re applying to college? Thinking about scholarships? You probably need to write an essay (or two, or six, or more). This workshop will take you from the blank page to the finished draft. You will work with a tutor, participate in brainstorming exercises, analyze successful essays, and write. The goal: to leave with a draft (or drafts) you feel good about submitting or reviewing with your parents, college counselor, or English teacher. The cool thing is that about a week later, you will have a chance to come back to work on another draft or re-tool an essay for a different school or scholarship, all with a tutor!

Different schools require different essays, from those on the Common Application to supplemental pieces, to particular topics at certain schools, or for scholarships. It will help a great deal if you have a list (even if it is a long one or is incomplete) of the written requirements and questions/topics of the colleges and programs you are contemplating.

This workshop is designed for college and scholarship applicants and high school juniors & seniors! During or after the workshop, students are welcome to sign-up for optional follow-up session during 826michigan’s Liberty Street Drop-in Tutoring program in mid-October.
