During this week-long seminar and workshop created by Writers in the Schools (WITS), you’ll read and analyze well-crafted memoirs and essays to practice techniques that you can apply to your college essays. Your instructor will walk you through the rules and guidelines of successful application essays to help you craft a unique narrative for personal statements and other essays. By the end of the week, you’ll be one step ahead with an essay written and revised, ready to submit to the college admission office.
