College Essay Writing Workshops in August

1 Comment

Do you have a student who needs to learn how to write a memorable college application essay? Sign up for one of my intensive four-day college essay writing workshops in August and let an award-winning writer guide your student toward success.

Students will learn:

  • What colleges want
  • What types of essays are successful
  • How to choose the right topic
  • How to write a great introduction
  • How to transform their life experiences into an interesting and memorable story that’s unique to them


It won’t be like pulling teeth, either, because I believe writing should be fun. I’ll share my stories as a professional television writer for ABC, CBS and NBC, and teach “insider” writing techniques that can make college essays stand out and get noticed.

Students will leave with a rough draft of their college application essay (the long essay on the Common Application).

Students and parents will have less stress come application deadline time.

The workshop will be held August 13 – 16 and again August 20 – 23 at the Redding Community Center, Redding, Connecticut, from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Each session is limited to 6 students so there will be lots of individual attention and feedback.

The fee is $400 and the deadline to sign up is two weeks before the first session. Bring your laptop. Minimum 3 students per class. For more information call 203-938-9199 or email
