Essay Writing Program Thursday May 14

Bethel Teen Center - Pro AccessJoin me on Thursday, May 14 at 7pm for “How to Write a Great College Application Essay.”

I’ll be talking about what colleges look for in winning college application essays. Students will learn how they can create unique and original college essays, I’ll go over this year’s Common Application essay prompts, and talk about why (or why not) specific essay prompts might be right for them.

During the second half of the program, everyone is invited to pull up chairs and get feedback on possible essay topics.

The event takes place at Pro Access, Bethel’s Teen Center. The address is 1 School Street. The phone number, if you need more information, is 203-482-1732.

Return for Interviewing Techniques!

Return the following week to learn interviewing techniques, including mock interviews with members of the business community. The interviewing program is Wednesday, May 20 at 7pm.

Both events take place at Pro Access, Bethel’s Teen Center. The address is 1 School Street. There is a small fee: $10 for both programs, $5 for one. The phone number, if you need more information, is 203-482-1732.

I hope to see you there!
