Ace the Essay: Writing Personal Statements and College Admissions Essays
What makes the perfect essay? What do college admissions offices look for in a personal statement? During this week-long seminar and workshop created by Writers in the Schools (WITS), you’ll read and analyze writers who work in memoir, non-fiction, and essay, and you’ll practice successful personal narrative techniques. Your instructor will examine with you the rules and guidelines that will help you write a better essay and breathe new life into an old form. By the end of the week, you’ll leave with an essay ready to submit to the college admission office.
