  • Analyze effective and ineffective example essays
  • Engage in creative brainstorming and self-reflection exercises to get more comfortable with writing about themselves and to uncover their unique stories and experiences
  • Draft outlines to address essay prompts
  • Generate rough drafts of their essays.

Essays will go through at least one round of professional review and editing. Students will need to bring a laptop to each class, as well as their student resume/activities list (a template will be sent in advance to students who register for the class). Limited space available, with a maximum of eight students to ensure that each student will get individualized attention for their essay drafts. Location: MUNNERLYN CAMPUS
