“Application Essay Essentials” Workshop

Day and time: Friday, September 11, 3:00 – 4:00 PM

Location: Zoom (link will be provided following registration)

Workshop description

Join us at the Writing Studio for a workshop focused on navigating the challenges of composing an application essay. We will explore what an application essay should be aiming to achieve and consider what application reviewers hope to learn about you in reading it. As we will discuss, not all application essay prompts are the same, so we will be thinking broadly about different kinds of applications.

Whatever your particular focus, you will leave this workshop with strategies for how to share your story with readers in an impactful, memorable way, whether you are just getting started or well on your way to a finished application.
