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 you 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 during after-school tutoring at 826michigan!

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 you are contemplating.

When you sign up, please indicate whether you have a laptop you can bring to the workshop; if not, we will arrange to have a computer at 826 for your use. Did we mention that lunch is included?

This workshop is a great follow-up to our summer “Common App is Where It’s At” workshop, but no previous workshop experience at 826michigan is required to attend.
